    Re: Moon total correction- round it up?

    Gary,

    I never said my sextant reads to seconds. Read the original post.

    What I needed to know was when any readings or figures be rounded up.

    I'm always using an AH so once IE is removed during the reduction and that figure is divided by 2 the majority of figures end up with seconds of arc at the end.

    For example;

    Hs= 43d 43.4min

    IE   -.1 

    Result divided by 2=  21d 51min 39sec (that's what the calculator says)

    It would be nice to work with a less cumbersome bunch of numbers and any way to speed the sight reduction process up would be helpful (without using a computer).

    Sam L.
