    Thanks, Russell, for this one!  I checked it out (BTW, for some reason
    my browser didn't sync up correctly and I had to use
    http://www.nima.mil/Navigation/ to access the "book") and as best I
    can tell, the appendix section "Long-Term Alamanac", was dropped from
    this edition.  I'll check my copy of the current Bowditch later today
    to be sure but I'm not surprised.  The current edition was cut back to
    one volume from the two volumes published until recently.  Damn bean
    counters!!!  Anyway, this is all the more reason to look for older
    editions of Bowditch, eh?
