    Practice Problems for Tables Methods?
    From: Steve Ward

    Hello everyone,

    I'm a new member, joined a couple days ago.  I've been a fan of celestial for many years, although I don't have much practice.  Thanks for having me aboard!

    Does anyone have a recommendation for sample problems I can practice with?  I've Googled a bit but this field is so unique I end up finding a strange array of blind alleys and dead ends on the websites I end up at.  

    I've read several books and done a few sights in the real world.  I like the book by Mary Blewitt and her method and would like to practice more with tables and problems.  

    One of these days I'll also get around to the calculator methods, but my primary interest for now is the table methods using the Almanac and HO 249.  

    Cheers, Steve
    Austin, TX
