    By 1876 the longitude difference between Wellington and Sydney had been determined by electric telegraph. Thus by 1876 there was no need, in the most far flung part of the Empire, for lunars.

    I find it interesting that in taking Lunars I am learning a craft that had outlived its usefullness 150+ years ago.
