    Re: Ho 208 question
    From: Randall Morrow

    Gary is correct regarding my question:

    "It is not a question of whether you need H.O. 208 or not, rather how it should/could be used with an LHA of zero."

    Neither the 1940 5th edition nor the 1942 6th edition in Lechter's book have a page for LHA of zero degrees.
    My mistakes in typing have contributed to the confusion here. Finding no LHA zero or 360 degrees I actually entered LHA 359*60', not 360*60'. The results were incorrect. Since neither version has the LHA of zero/360, it may be that Dreisenstok was well aware of the comment Gary made that at LHA zero no sight reduction calculations are needed.

    My second question in my first post was; does anyone have a .pdf of the 6th edition or any other edition in which the headers and footers have the scale for LHA that goes beyond 1-90 degrees? After printing, I hand copied these numbers in ink but a printed versionwould be neater. Alternatively, can the rules for how to convert the LHA's between 90 and 360 be stated in one sentence?
