Very helpful. Can you explain the 6 second of arc potential error. Why does it arise? Do you have any idea how that compares to the accuracy of the Lunar tables published in the 19th century in places like Raper, Norie etc?

and experiment. The lunars predictions should be accurate to better than a tenth of a minute of arc for the period from 1750 to 2050. Same for the lunars analysis calculator...
