I found an image of a discontinued astrolabe, which is attached to this message. It has a kidney-shaped curve that represents the equation of time. I would like to produce something like this using CorelDraw.
Corel is able to execute VisualBasic code...so what I am looking for are VB equations that calculate the equation of time. If I can get VB to give me basic daily values, I can get Corel to output this as a curve.
The Astron spreadsheet has an EoT field, but seems to be sufficiently locked down that I could not figure out how to see the code that filled in that field.
Can anyone suggest a source where I could find viewable code?
