    Re: Moon total correction- round it up?

    Here is something simple to try. After applying the index correction but before you divide by two, round to the nearest two whole minutes of altitude. For example, 43.3' rounds to 44.0'. Then when you divide by two the result will be whole minutes, no seconds!
