    A bit surprised at these results, I decided to check how "B Formulae" would perform against my own "Big" Lunar Software - let's call it "C Formulae". Here are the relevant data derived through "C Formulae" as follows:

    • Moon Ho+corr = 37°07.416'   Aldebaran Ho+Corr = 36°12.001'     LDpc = 95°38.576'   Moon Ho = 37°50.048'  Aldebaran Ho = 36°10.679' . And :
      • C Formulae LDc = 95°04.678' . NoteFrank, I am think that your On Line Calculator results are extremely close (to better than 1") from these "C Formulae" results.
    • I then ran "B Formulae" with the data immediately here-above :  "B Formulae" results LDc = 95°04.741'    Difference "C Formulae" - "B Formulae" = -0.063 '

    I also found that Frank's On Line Computer LDc = 95°04.7' (probably very close from 95°04.68' as suggested here-above).
