This is a very useful and instructive example. First off, what rule of thumb did you use to find a vertical case like this?
Attached are my calculations and the values for your method's A, B and Q terms. Lot's of smal correction details to get right such as dealing with bubble sextant corrections, reversing sighs for the Reed Lunar Clearance method etc. Hope I got it right.
