    Well, sure. But you try shooting the Sun at any other time from my backyard. :)

    I plugged the second observation into the formula:

    arccos((sin Ho - sin Dec sin Lat)/(cos Dec cos Lat))

    ...and (consistent with your analysis) was about 9' of longitude in error. Still, I'd take that over just a DR any day. But what do I know, I'm just a landlubber. Lol.

    Cheers,
    Sean C.

    P.S.
    It was center-to-center, forgot to mention that.
