    Re: Sun Moon Lunars to 155 degrees

    Jeremy, you wrote:

    Aha. Now I gotcha. Sorry, I misunderstood what you had written.

    And you wrote:
    "I have modified the spreadsheet in fact to account for the HP difference of Venus which changes on different dates than what Mr. Pearson originally entered. I go through the almanac each year and redo the table for when the HP changes."

    I'll have to take a look at his spreadsheet again. I seem to recall there was some other Venus issue, but maybe I'm wrong.

    You wrote:
    "As I posted in November sometime, my lunars from Venus were just as accurate as from other non-solar bodies and I was not doing anything in particular to correct for phase and the like."

    What magnification is your telescope? Could you post the dates when you've shot some successful Moon-Venus lunars (just the dates is enough)?

    You added:
    "The sun lunars were terrible for some reason, but for whatever reason, I am doing much better with them on this trip."

    Sometimes there's just plain old luck. :)
