    Re: For which celestial bodies is it relevant to display the lunar distance?

    Hi Andrew,

    I like the lunar distance charts - are you going to  put the code up on GitHub?.

    On your adaptation of PyAlmanac, I could get your SFalmanac to generate almanacs but on the full year generation Pyalmanac and SkyAlmanac appeared to hang in June (at one point I saw an exception due to an unitialised prevsetting I think...) Possibly I need to read the documentation.

    I spot checked a handful of values against the old PyAlmanac and noticed a few discrepancies of 0.1 minutes - possibly that's due to some variation in delta T?

    I had an interesting time getting things to run - I have an unsupported Ubuntu 16.04 which I keep because of a cross compiler withdrawn in later versions. Time to upgrade on another machine I guess.

    Best Regards
