    Re: Noonsite using artificial horizon? Did I do it correctly?

    Greg,

    My index error is -4' (it's above zero)

    How I determined LAN-

    Using Navsoft's HO249 I looked up August 24 2014 and found the MP for the Sun to be UT 12:02

    My Longitude is 75 Degrees 22' 27"

    Converting the 22' 27" to Time using Table 3- Conversion of Arc to Time I had to add the following time;

    1 minute and (about) 30 seconds for a total MP of;

    12:03:30

    with a Zone correction of +5 hours.

    So MP was 17:03:30

    Hope that makes sense. I'm new to this.

    Sam
