    Luis,
    Welcome!
    
    I am pleased to report that an extended and scholarly discussion on the
    method of Lunar Distance has recently taken place on this list, extending
    over the months since January. Of particular interest are the four part
    notes provided by George Huxtable.
    If you enter the archival search at the following Navigation-L URL below
    with the keywords 'lunar distance', you will see discussion spanning
    several prior years too.
    
    
    
    I caution you to pay special attention to the English spelling which varies
    just enough from your native tongue to be an obstacle to your search.
    Compare the word 'lunar' for example.
    
    Sincerely
    
    Brian W
