    Re: HO 249 Vol 1, epoch 2010, Typo

    I agree, but how the heck did you ever notice this?  Working on old problems?

    Here's another one for you: 
    In Bowditch Table 23 (28), Correction of Amplitude as Observed on the Visible Horizon, the correction values do not always increase monotonically from left to right (increasing declination) for a given latitude.  (For example, look the lines for latitudes of 25, 30, 32, 36, and 44 degrees.)  How can this be explained?

    FYI, those lines are from "recent" editions of Bowditch.  The table in the 1938 edition does not have the same correction values.  I do not have it in front of me right now, but, as I recall, even though the values are different, they do increase monotonically.

    Seems to be a little typo in Table 4, GHA Aries FOR THE YEARS 2006-2014, at the back of Vol 1. Part a. for May 1, 2010 reads 219-49. Perhaps it should be 218-49?
