    Many thanks Geoffrey,

    Just to re-assure you, just for my personal use. I have no commercial interest in any of my celnav (hobby) interests. The plan would be to create a one pager table like Hewitt’s using your tables, taking every 3 days or so and sticking to sun GHA + dec and the quad corrections. That should give me a table like Hewitt’s but with more recent and long lived (long enough for me anyway!) results. If you ok with that I may try doing it over the next few months. I will let you see first draft for approval and you could feel free t o refuse permission at any time.

    Thanks again.

    If you figure on selling a cut-down LTA based on the data in my LTA, then there might be some issues....​ But ​I think both me and Starpath Publications would be quite happy for you to use my LTA in any way you like, so long as it is for your use only.


    Good luck.
