    Re: The Improved Suns Table4 from HO249

    Dear Herman, thank you for looking at it.

    I noticed this typo*) because I try to create a spreadsheet that calculates each value in every table of this "long-term Sun GHA|Dec" by the formulas from Jean Meeus's book. The output is to be processed with the LaTeX - to obtain a nicer-looking document.

    Warm regards,

    60°N 30°E

    *) I'm not at all sure the first diff value is|was an error/typo - the previous (8') value was sort of in line with the surrounding diff values, the current one (10') sort of "stands out" from a smooth curve. I'll try to check if the diff for the Dec31styeari should be calculated not against the beginning of the table but against the Jan01styeari+1. May be then your initial tabulated value (the 8') will re-appear.
