    Re: Shooting my first Lunars

    Hi Frank

    see attached my detailed calculations / notes for my March 20 LD shooting, using my sun and moon altitudes. (I corrected some errors in my calculations)

    The total time for sun and moon sights and LD shooting was about 13 mins (still room for improvement, but already much better than the days before...).

    I am also attaching screen copies of results from both your Lunar apps that I used: the lunar almanac and the LD analysis app.

    There are two screen shots of the LD analysis app: one with my sun and moon altitude sights (showing a lunar error of 0.04'), the other without (lunar error: 1.3').  Can you comment on this (puzzling) difference in lunar errors? And on my results, of course.

    Feedback from anyone else is also appreciated!

    Huub
