    But how can I compensate for this? I imagine that I can calculate distance at time moment t between i.e. Earth and Sun, calculate time dt=t/c and then find positions of both bodies after such time interval. But this is only first approximation as the distance L(t) != L(t+dt) and I might need some more or less time. So, how does this compensation look like? It is some iterative algorithm or not?

    Best wishes,
    Rafal
