    Re: Precomputed lunar distances

    Frank,
    Yes, the true distances are
    tabulated monthly.
    And the six refraction tables are
    made for every 10 degrees of
    altitude and 10 degrees of latitude.
    
    Alex.
    
    P.S. If there is interest in a handy
    source of star-to-star distances,
    I can re-calculate the distances and
    post them together with refraction tables.
