    Re: Negative v correction

    The v correction is always applied with its sign, which is usually positive, with Venus being the only body that can have a negative v correction.  Just subtract if negative.

    The numbers next to the planets' names are their magnitudes, more negative values being brighter.  Venus being the brightest and Saturn the dimmest these days, though Saturn is still quite bright enough to be easily seen.

    Subject: [NavList] Negative v correction

    Starting from June 15 2017 thru July 17 2018 Venus has what appears to be a negative v correction. July 12 thru 17th 2018 shows v-0.1. I assume it's a negative value, how would this be applied for GHA?   I have another question about planets.At the top of the daily pages how are the numbers next to the planet names used? I just found a way to shoot planets with my artificial horizon YAY!!!!!! I've been beaming around for days.
