    When you use pub229, you have to choose an assumed longitude so the LHA is a whole degree. You did this when you chose 118 deg, 32.5 min. to get an LHA of 315 deg. However, when you plot the line of position, you must use this same longitude position. For the moon, you draw an line through the point N35, W 118 32.5 at azimuth 108, then mark off the intercept. You will be pleased with the new LOP. One nit, when you adjusted the Hc for the dec. inc., you added 9.1 to 18, but got 26.9 rather than 27.1
