    Ah, sorry,
    I forgot about those pages.
    Anyway, the USNO Astr. Alm. gives approx.
    one extra digit, personally I think that
    this extra digit is irrelevant, because I
    strongly believe in the Law of Large Numbers:-)
    but Bill
    always worries about rounding to 0'.1,
    saying that under some unfortunate circumstances
    the errors can accululate to 0'.2 and more:-)
    
    I also used small stars in the Orion belt in my
    previous message.
    
    Alex.
