    Re: Lunar distance measurement in ideal conditions: attainable accuracy.

    Thanks for your very 'illuminating' reply. The sky is beautiful tonight, here in Silicon Valley, but, alas, I need to align my sextant first and it's late. The Moon and Jupiter will be closer tomorrow night. And on the 19th my Starry Night program gives a distance of 23 deg 40 minutes and closing. I'll be ready! It's interesting to see the two objects move together at a rate of seconds per second, or so it seems. Do I have that right? I guess it is, because I've watched lunar occultations and the occulted body approaches the Moon (Moon approaches occulted body) and disappears very fast.
