    Re: HP 48GX Sight Reduction Programs
    From: Aubrey O´Callaghan

    Lee,
    I recently bought a HP49G and a copy of Meeus Astronomical Algorithms. I
    have been busy doing some initial programming.
    I have got almanac sorted out for sun positions and moon positions.
    I'm finding it quite a good way to learn my way around the HP programming
    language.
    Progress is quite slow as I have too many other things to do, but I'm happy
    to share my experiences with you.
    Aubrey.
