    Re: Real accuracy of the method of lunar distances

    No, Fred,
    
    Errors reported in my posting were given for averaged measurements from six 
    shots in every case. Each such average was taken as the *single* observation 
    and the error was compared with the corrected chronometer time only for this 
    average, not for each of six original shots. Therefore, no error referred to 
    in my posting can be divided by the square root of six, as you propose (as if 
    you search for the standard error of the mean from the set of six 
    measurements).
    
    
    Yours, Jan Kalivoda
