    On second thought, I think the actual epoch at which the coordinates are
    valid is more important than the intended epoch. Therefore, if a more
    accurate (compared to MICA 2.0) star catalog or precession / nutation
    model is available, it should be used to determine the epoch.
    I have always felt comfortable using the same star data for three days,
    and never felt any need to look into this matter. So I don't know if
    MICA 2.0 would give a result significantly different from more modern
    I filter out messages with attachments or HTML.
