    Re: Which calculator to use for "arctan(tan(269))"?

    Not actually a suggestion, just a vague recollection.  Somewhere I read that LHA is measured westward, but meridian angle (t) can be measured east or west.  Then I see LHA referred to as t, so I don't know.

    Regards,
    Pete

    Pete,

    You suggested the "meridian angle" name for the "the longitudinal difference between two locations", but is the established designation fot it? Which (greek/latin) letter should I use in the formula?

    Regards,

    Tony
