    You might consider using the Haversine formulas for your star reductions with traditional tables from Norie's or Bowditch as they would have done prior to pubs like 249 or 229.  With this method, all the stars are available.  You are not limited by the constraints of the 229 or 249 publications.

    Thanks Doug,

    I'll keep that in mind ! For now I am "passionate" by Pub. 249 & 229

    Regards Guus.
