I have just done the altitude corrections per the outline handed out in class and am about to clear the lunar using the series method. Where those corner formulas refer to Alt m or s, should I be using Alts as adjusted for the refraction and parallax figured out in the Altitude Corrections, or the original from Stellarium. My assumption would be use the altitudes from Stellarium as adjusted for parallax and refraction.
Also, does a dh for the moon of -48.8' and for the sun of 2.0' seem in the ball park for a raw moon alt of 14.2d and for the sun of 22.9?
