    Re: Impossible lunar example

    I see, George,

    thank you for your remark.

    I thought that the W009° longitude info originated from Maskelyne, while I was actually reworking Moore's specific example.

    No worries mate : Moore's data re-worked with a full 20° decrease to his moon height value now give realistic results (which I have published), however NOT compatible with the W009° longitude quoted by Moore, although they fall to an observed UT quite close from the UT he (seems to have) quoted.

    I did notice the (slight) differences between the values quoted by Maskelyne and Moore, and I had hastily attributed them to the fact that Maskelyne had quoted geocentric heights, while Moore gave apparent topocentric ones.

    Lunars are nice ...


    Antoine
