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)
