    Re: Tables for clearing the Lunar Distances from Bruce Stark

    There probably won't be another edition of the Tables. I expect nearly
    everyone who would use them already has a copy.
    But I'd welcome an altitude-calculation work sheet and an extension of the
    "log Dec" table if you, or someone else, designed and published them.
    For the extension to the log Dec table, perhaps all you'd need would be
    values for the navigational stars outside the 29? 18' range of the regular table.
    That and at degrees and half degrees for latitude. This might fit on one sheet
    that could be pasted onto the last page of the log Dec table, as a fold out.
    I'd also welcome a pamphlet adjusting r&p and "Q" for nonstandard temperature
    and pressure. The one I did for Robert Eno was for cold weather only. A
    different design would be needed to take care of both high and low temperatures.
    Although I'd rather lunarians didn't trouble themselves with small stuff, there
    are situations where the extra corrections would be worthwhile.
