    Re: Pub. 249 question

    For Stan's conditions:

    The 1947 preliminary 249 picks 6 not 7.  It chose,dubhe,pollux, betegeux, aldebaran, alphertaz, and deneb.

    My algorithm pick7 selects 6 of the HO249,  but misses one.  Looking at a plot of altitudes and azimuths (attached), I can't understand.

    249
    Dubhe
    pollux
    BETELGEUSE
    RIGEL
    Hamal
    Alpheratz
    deneb
    count
    in 249, not pick7
