    It does not matter. You can use even eye estimate for the
    ALT. The influence of this term is small.
    Even tounding to 10 degrees will not affect the result.

    I also asked myself this question. There is no answer
    in the Almanac.
    But then when I wrote the exact formula
    after Frank's hint, and compared with
    the Almanac, I realized that Moon's SD in the almanac is
    a very rough estimate,
    which seems to be always less than the true value,
    so I lost interest to
    this question. I wonder what do they include it for.
