    Hello Jeremy,

    You wrote :


    " 5) The "v" correction is similar to the "d" correction but is applied to the GHA of the body. You must use the number at the bottom of the column for all non-lunar bodies. "


    May I comment as follows ?

    Yes ! And if I remember well, the "v" correction is ALWAYS POSITIVE for the Navigational Planets, with one (exotic!) exception : VENUS for which it can be negative.
    I would also guess that the same holds for Mercury too ... but limited interest here.

    Best Regards

    My following question is a bit late, I know ... since Mercury was beautiful in the morning sky just one week ago (i.e. by the 08th of January 2011), but ...

    ... do you belong to the "Mercury Shooters Club" ? :-))
