    I wonder if you could clarify just what it is that you are saying. I'm
    afraid I'm a bit confused.

    OK, I'll post a fully worked lunar from my notebook (later) and then you
    can ask away.
    
    BTW, my sextant is a Tamaya ms-636 with a homemade scope (5x, 36mm, roof
    prism).

    A book. The New Practical Navigator by John Hamilton Moore. The copy in
    our library is the 13th edition, 1798 (not 1796 as I said above). It gives
    recipes like Norrie.
