    Re: Longitude by Sunrise example

    The N.A. states that the table allows for a S. D. of 16' and a
    refraction of 34' (the value in the refraction table for zero altitude)
    so the Ho is actually -50' when the UL is on the horizon when observed
    from sea level. To this you would also have to allow for dip.
