    Re: Impossible lunar example. was: Clearing lunars

    ACTION STATION AGAIN ALL HANDS !!!! ... alas , after so nice months of calm seas !!!

    *******

    Two things in my view point here :

    Frank, you did discover - certainly first ever ever ever ever on Earth - that there are a NUMBER of Lunars that can be solved by a clever quick solution of yours. So , CONGRATULATIONS AGAIN, and if some people keep forgetting acknowledging it, I am writing again on behalf of (almost) everybody : CONGRATULATIONS !

    However I fail to see in your last post a "quick and easy recipe" to be used to ascertain / recognize valid cases for using your "fast lunar method" without endangering the final results. The bottom line is here : we need to know how practicable your magnificent discovery is, therefore please be so kind as to show us how it can be a readily usable one. If I missed any earlier demonstration of yours to establish that you have published a good simple rule of thumb to verify that one can use you shortcut or should not use it, then I do apologize for challenging you again on this specific point.

    *******

    And finally, if somebody disagrees with giving "unrealistic examples" such as this (new battle triggering) "impossible lunar", I would think that certainly such view point is quite valid. I hardly see any reason why Lunar examples should not reflect realistic world examples, ... except pure mathematical number crunching ... and if such were the name of the game, why would we not give examples of Cel fixes with Heights of Eye NEGATIVE !!! Some formulae for refraction still yield "reasonable" results for negative heights of eye, but what's the use here ???

    Thank you for your Attention, and

    Best Regards
