    Re: Longitude sight, South Pacific, 1864

    Ed,
    I have been trying to make sense out of the March 8,1864 Time Sight as presented. I have no difficulty 01 with the methodology, but am having a problem with the results - particularly with the declination and consequently with the polar distance. The declination as given in the US Nautical Almanac for Nov 8 1864, at Greenwich Mean Noon is 16-44-44.3 South, and for  Noon on the 9th is 17-01-53.7 South, or a total change in 24 hrs, of  slightly over 19' in 24 hrs
