    The calculated slope is for your estimated position. Suppose you are not at, or anywhere close to the estimated position - the calculated slope will not be what it should be for your actual position. Is that not correct Peter?
     
    The calculated slope is derived from the latitude of observation and azimuth of the body being observed.  So if you assume you are at one latitude but are instead a very long way away then I guess that your calculated slope, in that case, could be incorrect.  Is that helpful, Geoffrey?
