    Re: Graphs of Lunar Distances.

    An arc-minute strikes me as being quite good for a sextant.

    The current Jupiter/Moon alignment is great for lunars.   I used this for my class.   I asked them to measure the Moon-Jupiter distance over successive nights using their hands or a protractor and string.   My wife got a bit annoyed with me on Tuesday night as I kept jumping up at different times throughout the night to measure the distance.   I wish I'd had my good sextant with me.   It's in my other house and the one I have lying around is a WWII vintage standard issue US Navy one it needs a lot of work.   I can't touch an arc-minute with that thing.
