    Re: Moon Venus Lunar - Interpretation of results

    This is all very interesting.  What do you (Paul and/or Frank) use to determine the relative angular velocities of, say, the Moon and Venus?  Are you using the prediction software on ReedNavigation and finding the rates in a one or three hour period?  Can Stellarium be used for this purpose?  

    I have heard several times ove the past weeks that the effects of small errors in observing a Lunar are magnified by the time you calculate GMT.  I had no idea that it was a 30x factor, though I'm sure I had that fact in my notes somewhere.
