    Re: V-Correction for Sun? Answer from UKHO...
    From: David Pike
    Date: 2016 Oct 18, 01:20 -0700
    IF there were a "v" correction for the sun then for 57 days of the year it would be "0". For another 149 days it would be either + 0.1' or - 0.1'.
    so for 206 days it would never exceed 0.1'. Even on the 149 days when it was 0.1', for the first half of each hour the correction would round down to zero. There are 121 days when it would be either + 0.2' or - 0.2' and only 38 days when it would be -0.3' (there are no days when it would be + 0.3') and this is during the period of December 3 through January 10th. gl

    Gary, I salute you.  Did you really sit down and consult the bottom of all 366 daily pages of your Air Almanac?  I was tempted to do it, but then I thought “Nah”.  DP
