    Re: Friendly challenge : Jupiter Lunar Exercise 09 Feb 2011

    Hi folks truly great stuff indeed.Just my two cents:Since the azimuths of the Sun and Jupiter are very close therefore LOPS are nearly parallel I would assume by shooting additional bodies for a better fix cut and comparing the "fix" with the Moon LOP GMT can be recovered as explained in John Letcher's good book "Self Contained Cel Nav HO 208". Also I believe that can be a check of the Lunar Distance method of GMT? Thanks so much and I will working on these.
