    Clearly I have a yet another detail to learn...
    What is the difference between oblateness and flattening?
    Flattening: distortion of a sphere into ellipsoid
    Oblatenes: Further distortion of that ellipsoid.
    Is this correct?

    Again, and since I always compute with Oblateness and Flattening, the options of Frank's Computer are very nice to evalute the effects of both Flattening and/or Oblateness.
