    Dear Peter,
    
    
    As promised earlier to-day, I could take the time to closely verify and check 
    the data in NavList 9823. They seem to be all correctly typed.
    
    I also re-ran both examples directly from the data published in NavList 9823. 
    Both results fully agree with my earlier and former results.
    
    Here are the results I get :
    
    
    DENEB
    
    Transit Time, i.e. DENEB exactly North of moving Vessel occurs at 16h32m31.3s
    
    Position at 16:30.0 UT is N4208.5E006533 and it was (by chance) 0.7 NM away 
    from our TRANSIT FIX at 16:30 UT. Our confidence on this astronomical fix was 
    a Latitude error of 0.3' and Longitude error of 1.96'. (3 SIGMA values)
    
    
    RIGIL KENT
    
    Transit time at 09h17m52.3s (R KENT exactly south of moving vessel)
    
    Position at 09:30.0 UT is S4815.7W01709.4 while we had an other independent 
    FIX off 1.4 NM from Astronomical FIX. Our confidence for this Astronomical 
    Fix was a Latitude error of 0.3' and a Longitude error of 3.8' (3 SIGMA 
    values).
    
    Well, I will admit that this one is kind of unique in many respects. But it did work out quite well.
    
    This concludes my current recent series of contributions to NavList. I will 
    probably not be able to catch up with any replies for the upcoming week.
    
    Best Regards from
    
    
    Antoine
