    Ken,
    Thank you for pointing your paper on Gregory's lunar.
    It is very interesting indeed.

    This will not reduce the part of the error due to the almanac.
    (See my previous message for explanation).
    
    Averaging sights on two sides of the moon will only
    reduce index error, maybe "personal error" etc.
