    Selected comparisons for the year -6000 between Sky View Cafe and Navigation Spreadsheets. Declination is in columns D-F (and X), right ascension (in degrees) is in column W (for stars) or cell B162 (for planets):

    Hello Peter,

    Would you mind giving more details about your starting data ?

    Did you compute your data for Jan 01, -6000 at 00:00:00 TDT or 00:00:00 UT ? And if you used UT, which TT-UT value did you use ?

    An accurate time depiction might not be crucial for stars RA and DEC, however it certainly is for planets RA and DEC.

    Thank you for your Kind Attention and Reply, and

    Best Regards
