    David C, you wrote:

    So skip the altitudes! This was sometimes done historically (using altitudes calculated from the DR), but more to the point, for modern practice you can forego the observed altitudes and allow any app (including my online web app) to calculate them for you from your known location while you're learning to shoot the lunar distance angle itself. When you work out the bugs with that process, you can always come back "later" and try for complete lunars where you shoot altitudes, too.
