    Lunars Tables
    From: Scott Owen
    Date: 2007 Nov 30, 17:45 -0600

    Bought a copy of Bruce Starks, Tables for Clearing the Lunar Distance a
    few weeks ago.  From the archives it looks as though Bruce was a regular
    contributor but I did not see anything of late.  I have two questions:
    1)  Are these the tables most members use for reducing Lunar
    observations or is there some other preferred method/tables?  [I know
    there are many methods to do this, I'm just trying to get a feel for
    what method list members are using and what may be considered the most
    accurate method.]
    2)  Is anyone familiar with the trig/math that Bruce used to derive his
    lunar tables?  If so, does anyone know if Bruce is amenable to posting
    it on the list or has it been posted in the past and I just missed it in
    the archives?
    Thanks in advance.
