    Dear Lars,

    Congratulations and thank you very much for your unique solution based on just Nautical Almanac, Burton's Nautical Tables and Bruce Stark's Lunar Tables.

    I am very impressed at both the idea you came up with and the way you implemented it through the use of all these tables. All of this WITHOUT a Calculator : only clever logic and accurate use of Log Tables, to derive an end-result quite close from actual position ! As a matter of fact, I had earlier thought that there would exist no such solution without the need to iterate.

    I am not familiar with your method, which I already printed of course in order to study it closely. Having solved this case through a different method, having also read Frank E. Reed's approach and then studied Paul Hirose's iterative differential solution will only make your own solution "tastier" !

    MY HAT DOWN to you again and

    WELCOME TO THE CLUB WITH FRANK AND PAUL ! :-)


    Very Best Friendly Regards from

    Kermit

    PS : Not too cold, not too much snow in the Stockholm (Arlanda) area ???
