    Paul Adamthwaite assures me that his "Stormy Weather Astro" program has all
    the corrections to be accurate back to 3000 BC, so it should be OK for your
    purposes. It gives results to the nearest tenth of a minute.
    It can be downloaded at Paul's website, http://www.stormy.ca/
    But..... It is a DOS program and so your elderly Mac will treat it with
    some disdain. Any elderly PC will run it though.
