    Jim-
     I think the 2004NA actually agrees with Henning's number, the only
    difference is that the 2004NA did not convert accumulated minutes into
    degrees, i.e.:
    
     320d 00.0m
    +   0d 84.6m
    =========
    321d 24.6m  substantially similar to 321d 25.0m
    
    I don' t know how the NA is produced by have seen calculations that
    similarly simply failed to do a conversion at some point, and racked up some
    numbers.
    
    
    
    Surely the range from 68.6-84.6 minutes isn't allowably precise for you
    though?
