    Even by hand, lunars calculations are not difficult. First, I do not mean to imply that Bruce's tables are better or worse than anything else. But the numerous historical methods did not take very much effort. A time sight, which was a standard calculation for over a hundred years in celestial navigation was approximately one third the work of a lunar with very similar steps involved.
