    Re: Impossible lunar example. was: Short-cut lunars. was: Clearing lunars
    From: Kent Nordstr�m

    Hi again,
    George asked me if I can provide certain pages from the Tables Requisite 
    issued 1781. Yes I hope I can but it may take a couple of days for me find 
    these pages. Even better may be is to provide the complete Tables Requisite 
    from 1781 (in pdf-format). The file is likely medium big.  Is this 
    acceptable?
    Regards
    Kent N
