    Hi folks! An interesting observational situation occurred as follows: Using
    Davis Artificial Horizon sites appeared ok i.e. graphing 2Hs vs. time on all
    sites resulted in a near classic "pinwheel fix".However comparing "fix" to
    map the results were off. Using my"fix" for Hc computations lunar distance
    GMT differed by a mere few seconds indicating the flexibility of assumed
    position choice. I feel the reason for the discrepancy stems from the
    artificial horizon fluid being a combination of baby and bath oil
    introducing a constant error.I did notice several aberrations while scanning
    the pool. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! Mike Burkes
