I probably don't have the same inputs that you used but here is where I come out using your six sights. I have assumed Sun-Moon NEAR.
Where I'm guessing is eye height and pressure. BTW, nice cut angle, about as close to 90° as you can wish for.
The six sight average time and LD observed are 17:55:11 GMT and LDobserved 84°54.05' using IC=-2.0' (which is a lot)
SD Sun 16.27' Moon 16.28'
Using Frank's calculator LDcalc 85°07.2' LDtrue 85°06.7'
Err 0.5' COS -0.00986
Interpolating for time
17:55:11 85°07.2' 1:16 fast <-----
Lots of assumptions. How did your time calculation come out?
