    Lunars: 10/27/2013
    From: Sean C
    Date: 2013 Oct 28, 07:48 -0700

    Yesterday, October 27th 2013, I shot the following lunars from my front yard:

    11:12:11___82°50.6'
    11:13:25___82°50.2'
    11:14:15___82°49.4'
    11:15:13___82°49.2'
    11:16:33___82°48.2'

    All times are LMT (EDT; UT -4). I used the Sun as the other body. Near limbs. Temperature was 61°F/16.1°C, pressure was 30.10in/1019.3mb. Scattered clouds. Approximate location was 37°03.3'N, 076°28.6'W. Height of eye was 45.83ft/13.97m.

    Sextant was a Davis Mk.15 with an index error of 0.0' (recorded at the beginning of the round only). Timepiece used was a Casio Pathfinder (module #3172) with an error of about -00:00:00.5 according to my eye and an Android app (ClockSync). The watch is radio updated, but it hadn't successfully received the time signal within the previous 24 hours.

    After plotting the data, I decided to use the second observation (at 13 min.) without averaging. I used two different calculators to clear the LD (Frank's and Rodger Farley's) and was quite satisfied with the result. ;)
