    LMT is NOT zone time (ZT)
    LMT + LoW (converted to hours) = GMT
    In this case GMT is 0735 (not 0714)

    > I purchased the book 100 problems in Celestial Navigation, 2nd edition. On 
    Page 3 problem #1-. The problem is asking for the GHA of aries at 0414 LMT 
    which is 0714 GMT. Date 5/13/93
    > On page 104 is the almanac for that day, at 0700 for May 13 the GHA of aries 
    is 336 06.0. The increment for for 14 m is 3 30.6. Total rounded up is 340. 
    Subtracting out the Long. 50 15 W The LHA of aries should be 289 or 290. The 
    book say the LHA of aries is 294. Is there a mistake in the book or am I 
    doing something wrong?
