    "You can see that the iteration is
    converging, but painfully slowly, improving by approximately a factor of

    I should have said: does it _always_ converge? and how quickly?

    I might add: can the iteration convergence be improved with a correction factor as with the second method in Meeus's Kepler iteration method?
