    A Lunar theory question
    From: Jeremy C
    Date: 2010 Apr 7, 10:43 EDT
    As I have been shooting lunars over the past two years or so with different comparing bodies, i often wonder how much does the difference in relative declination matter to lunar accuracy.  For example how does the accuracy of the lunar differ if the moon's declination was 25 degrees south, and the sun was 20 degrees north, verses both being of similar declination.
     
    Is this the reason that we choose bodies close to the ecliptic for lunars?  I tend to think about this when I am shooting star lunars in the dead of night when I am presented with many options of bodies to compare.
