    Re: Position from altitude and azimuth.

    Dear Andrés,

    Thank you very much for your prompt reply.

    While Dave Walden published Topocentric, unrefracted, center of body Ho=54 d 55.9 m (equivalent to Geocentric center of body 54°55.98') and AZo=120 d 27.9 m , it now looks like you used Z = 120.0 + 27.29 / 60.0 (120°27.29') instead for the Azimuth.

    Would you be so kind as to reprocess for us your 5 magnificent computations with Z = 120°27'9 and H Geocentric = 54°55.98' (or H Topocentric = 54°55.9') for center of body ?

    Thanks in advance and

    Best Friendly Navigational Regards,

    ⚓  Kermit ✈️
