    Re: Lunar distances
    From: Trevor Kenchington

    There is also the paper "A Modern View of Lunar Distances" published in
    the Journal of the Institute of Navigation in 1966. (It is pages 131 to
    153 of volume 19). I copied it years ago but have never read it.
    However, I can confirm that it includes a technical explanation
    (peppered with equations), sufficient tables to allow for the clearing
    of lunar distances with the data from the Nautical Almanac of the late
    1960s (which for all I know may have had data missing from more recent
    editions), and a worked example.
