Thanks for your reply. That is extremely interesting to see that you shot your Sun LOP's from a Bombardier CRJ, an Aircraft which I often "fly" as a Passenger when commuting from home base (LFRS), to various airports in Europe, with often also subsequent long-haul sectors as a passenger from bigger airports (mainly LFPG/LFPO, LEMD, EHAM, EGKK/EGLL) towards whichever places on Earth my Company sends me to operate from. The Bombardier CRJ is definitely a Great Aircraft from a passenger view point, and certainly also from a Pilot's standpoint !
May I ask for further information ?

Lastly Corriolis correction definately adds to accuracy of the fix, for this plot, knowing that I did not have stable sight conditions, I did not apply it.
Should you then now perform such Coriolis Correction - which might be a sizeable one in your case given the information given by David in his last post, maybe ? - what would be your "updated LOP's" compared to your earlier published ones ?
Thank you for your Kind Attention,
