    Re: Tables for clearing the Lunar Distances from Bruce Stark

    Of course, I cannot act as Bruce's speaker, but I suppose that your want is 
    very easy to be fullfilled. The computation of reference distances for full 
    hours according to the second Bruce's worksheet runs absolutely the same way 
    as the computation of altitude for assumed or D.R. position in St.Hilaire 
    intercept method. Only the difference of GHA's should be changed for LHA of 
    the actual body and one declination for the assumed latitude. The result will 
    be the calculated altitude instead of lunar distance. The declination and LHA 
    would have to be interpolated to the exact time of observation of the body, 
    what was superfluous in calculating reference lunar distances.
