    Lunar Distances in the Philosophical Transactions
    From: Nicol�s de Hilster
    Date: 2006 Dec 05, 12:13 +0100

    As a lot of you are into Lunars, you might find the following three 
    articles of the Philosophical Transactions 
    (http://www.journals.royalsoc.ac.uk/)  most interesting:
    
    Volume 37, 1731/1732, Number 420, pages 147-356 (no not 210 pages, page 
    356 is added as it contains an important errata)
    Volume 37, 1731/1732, Number 421, pages 185-195
    Volume 37, 1731/1732, Number 425, pages 341-356
    
    The first article describes the invention of the Octant (by John Hadley).
    The second describes a method for finding longitude within a degree and 
    refers to the first article (by Edmund Halley).
    The third article is the first field test done with the Octant (by John 
    Hadley).
    
    As said in [NavList 1764] these articles are free for download until the 
    end of the year (but I have a copy for those who see this message too late)
