    close enough as makes no difference.

    We omitted to record time, because it didn’t seem relevant.  However, I reckon we were out there between 19.45 and 20.35.  ‘Navigator’ says the last time I pressed ‘Now’ was at 20.16 when I turned my attention to Pollux and Betelgeuse.  This thread has pulled in a lot to read carefully; maybe more comment when I've had chance to read it all slowly.  DaveP
