    Arthur Pearson's website is at . It is designed to
    provide useful information about lunar-distance techniques, or pointers to
    where it can be found.
    Modesty should (but won't) forbid me to refer to a seies of postings "About
    lunars" which I posted a year or two ago: Arthur's website supplies
    pointers to the latest archived versions. Some of these have been updated,
    as my own understanding has improved, mostly as a result of Nav-L
    discussion. To my shame, concluding postings on deriving longitude from the
    resulting GMT have been long-promised, but have not yet materialised. That
    series was intended to explain lunars to someone who was familiar to
    celestial navigation, but was new to lunar distances, so it ought to meet
    John's requirement.
