    Re: Fw: Chichester's Calculations
    From: Gary LaPook
    Date: 2008 Dec 8, 21:17 -0800

    Correction, since Chichester added his watch error of 2:30 his watch
    was running slow, not fast on GMT.
    
    gl
    
    "A" show his computation of GMT or Zulu time for entering the Almanac.
    12:11:22 is his watch time and the watch is obviously set to GMT.
    02:30
    + 1/2 is the correction for his watch error which is running that many
    minutes fast on GMT, Adding these two numbers produces the GMT of the
    observation of 12:13:52 (he dropped the extra half second.)
    
    "B" shows the computation of LHA for entry into H.O. 249.
