    >> The suspicion falls on the tirst term in the sum, representing log sec 48d
    >> 30.1', or log sec 48.5017. If I calculate this term, I make it to be
    >> 0.17875, not 9.12462 as Chuck has it.
    >> So if we substitute 0.17875 as the first term in the sum, and add the other

    >> This is close to (but slightly different from) the figure Chuck arrives at,
