    Mr. Prinz and I had a good off list discussion about this last week.Here is
    one of the letters of that exchange.Zd is -7.I used the index or the horizon
    polarizing shade on all Moon observations including the distance
    measurements.I just meant the horizon was sharp and could be seen easily all
    through this and that the fog didn't obscure the horizon.The reason for the
    20 min. delay between the 221040 zt alts. and the 1st distance was I had to
    check the fluids and prep the vessel for a 0030 hrs. departure.The Jupiter
    hs's below have already been supplimented from the backsight.Mr. Prinz and I
    were having a discussion about the intercepts for these specific times and
    that is why I reduced them.2000 zt sights were Moon + Jupiter.2200 zt sights
    were Moon + Spica.
