Here are last night's results using Frank's calculator. I allowed the calculator to determine the altitudes of Venus and the Moon.
Error in Lunar -1.5'
Error in long 45.8' (approx 3 min time?)
Error in lunar -3.9'
Error in long 1° 57.6' (30 min time?)
Error in lunar 0.3'
Error in long 07.5' (approx 30 seconds time?)
I reworked sight 3, using my observed altitudes
Error in lunar -0.8'
Error in long 22.5' (approx 1.5 min time?)
Referring to the altitude observations my old school teacher would say Must try harder.
