    Re: Hav-Doniol Lat/Dec subtractions

    Greg, you wrote

    'Just subtract the smaller from the larger so that L+/- d is always positive.'

    Couldn't agree more. It's in the finest tradition of CN to avoid any negative numbers. But if I get to use Hav-Doniol for a class or in a presentation, I'll use the Lat ~ Dec naming for the operation, which is also in the finest traditions of CN .....
