    Brad, no, noodles make people overweight, I don't hang them. (Neutrons are even more dangerous - you'll get arrested in the first airport you visit - for smuggling of fissionable materials)

    I asked because in CN most of the values are tabulated to the tenth of arcminute, I thought I must handle the calculations properly - hence my question.

    By the way, since I got me a 7x (Keplerian) scope all (95%) my intercepts have decreased to ±0.2 nm. It's a big difference with where I started: 5~7 nm as a beginner with no scope, slowly getting to within 2~3 nm, then with a 3x (Galilean) scope I got to ±0.7 nm, and now this. Today I decided to try no-scope sight again, alas, refraction conditions were severe, even with the 7x I was "toward 2.5 nm", without a scope - no worse than that. I think - I'm making some progress. :)

    Warm regards,
    Tony
