    Re: Ho 208 question

    Stan and Gary,
    As always thank you both for your help.
    It should have been PST, not PDT so plus 8 is correct.
    Using USNO the intercept was 0.3 NM so the sight was very accurate.
    I didn't have my almanac here but My GHA total DID include the increment value of 7* 17.7
    It was indeed "fatfingers" when I keyed in my first mesage as the SHA I used was the 258* 33.1 valus.
    I should add that I shot sights for Mirphak, Dubhe, Regulus Rigel and Aldebaran and each of these gave correct results in the Celestial Tools Ho 208 system.
    In the "tools" entry I used my GPS location of 35* 19.4 N, 119* 05.5 W.

    It had not occurred to me that the LHA of zero makes it a "noon" sight. Cool.
    This is the only time out of 5067 sights that I got exactly that LHA.

    Kind regards, Randy
