    Yes, I read it and I like the book.

    So far, my experience with Celestaire's service was very
    positive. But verifying their statements about arc precision
    is not a trivial matter.
    If after a year of trials I will say that the arc error is 0.4'
    rather than, for example 0.2' as advertized, it can be always
    blamed on my poor skill, etc.

    So what? You can find almost anybody's name and address
    in the telephone book too. Name and address of a person
    is not such a big secret:-)
