    Question about history of lunar distance
    From: Ducruy Jacques
    Date: 2019 Jan 28, 09:07 -0800

    Hello,

    I search information about the method of lunar distance of P Apian (1524) : do you know if this method is directly the "ancestor" of the method of Halley (described in the astronomic tanles of 1749) ?

    I have read some description of the method of Apian, but the text (in french ou in english) is not very clear ...

    Thank you in advance

    Best Regards

    Jacques
