    Re: Real accuracy of the method of lunar distances

     The babelfish says "Wahrscheinliche St?rung" would mean "Probable error" 
    while "wahrscheinlicher Fehler" means "More probably error".
    
     I don't pretend to speak German or to claim the babelfish is perfect at it, 
    only to note there is a question here of exactly what that phrase translates 
    into. Perhaps someone could verify it? Perhaps the difference is simply the 
    idomatic meanings?
    
    Obviously "error" is coming from different roots, perhaps there are different 
    subtleties to "wahrscheinlicher" or a more literal translation?
