    Re: Latitude by Lunar Distance

    There was a typo error in my recent note, in this thread.
    
    I had written-
    
    | Using the almanac, how do you find what the predicted angle should
    be,
    | between Moon and star, at a particular moment of GMT? You will have
    to
    | look up many quanties in the almanac, each one stated to the nearest
    | 0.1', a potential error of +/- 0.5'.
    
    That last quantity should, of course, have been written as +/- 0.05'.
    Sorry about that. Elsewhere in that note, the correct amount, of +/-
    0.05', has been quoted, and used.
    
    George.
