    Time of meridian passage accuracy
    From: Andrés Ruiz
    Date: 2009 Sep 25, 09:25 +0200

    BOWDITCH says this:

     

    1801. Equation of Time

    To calculate latitude and longitude at LAN, the navigator

    seldom requires the time of meridian passage to accuracies

    greater than one minute. Therefore, use the time listed under

    the “Mer. Pass.” column to estimate LAN unless extraordinary

    accuracy is required.

    Any opinion?
