    I agree that the "approximate" solutions for clearing LD's are capable of the 
    same accuracy as the "rigorous" ones IN PRINCIPLE and that these names refer 
    only to the deduction of their formulas and not to their results.
    
    Nevertheless, most "approximate" methods and tables (not Chauvenet's method) 
    yielded worse accuracy than rigorous ones in the real life, although this 
    difference wasn't by no means important aboard ship.
    
    I don't want to repeat myself, look at http://web.dkm.cz/kalivoda/LunDistClass.htm, if you like.
