    AAArrrrrgggggghhhhhh......

    Correction to pervious post:

    Then subtract the same assumed longitude of 118 - 20.7 and determine the LHA Aries at 0124 Z is now 41 - 00.0'. NOT 42-00.0'. 

    Since the time changed by exactly four minutes the LHA changed by exactly one degree.

    ------------------------------------------

    Doing the normal computation, tabulated GHA Aries, 158 - 20.7', add the 1 - 00' increment and find the GHA Aries at 0124 Z of 159 - 20.7' Then subtract the same assumed longitude of 118 - 20.7 and determine the LHA Aries at 0124 Z is now 42 - 00.0'. 

    So that is how you can use just one AP.
