    While there are corrections that can be applied for precession, this one 
    surely isn't "exact" (you don't get the exact positions for the stars for 
    2010 just by applying that rule). Or did I miss your point?

    Long Term Almanac which provides accurate data until 2050."
    Yes, that's a really good option, too.
