    Sean,

    Thanks for reworking the sight.  I input your updates and again used my calculator program based on Frank's workshop algorithm, I get the following.  We are quite close.

    Ho Moon = 37deg 50.1'

    AC Moon = -42.3' (reversed sign)

    Ho Aldebaran = 36deg 10.7'

    AC Aldebaran =  +1.4' (reversed sign)

    LDpc = 95deg 38.6

    A = 0.8278

    B = 0.8359

    Q = 2.3727E-3

    LDc =  95deg 04.9'

    LDdelta % = -0.60  (LDpc->LDc change)

    deltaZ = 136.2deg   (angle between moon and star's vertical circle)
