    Long lost lunars
    From: Frank Reed CT
    Date: 2003 Dec 3, 16:32 EST
    I did about a hundred land-based lunar distance sights during the past twelve months (actually 400 individual lunars) and with a very good sextant I was able to get my longitude to within +/-9 minutes reliably or equivalently an error of about +/-0.3 minutes in the lunar itself. If anyone is interested, I can describe some of my lunar adventures for the list. Oh, and I usually reduce my sights on my cell phone --which is painfully ironic since the cell phone has built-in GPS.
