    Jim,
    That is not surprising, since I don't understand the effect of declination change on determination of longitude.  At this point, I am abstracting from as much change as I can.  I am trying to wrap my little brain around the problem of determining the longitude of my front garden.  The problem of establishing the longitude of a vessel in motion is too much at this point.   I would be happy to be instructed, however.  That is the change you are talking about, isn't it-- the observer in motion?

    change on the determination of longitude. But you're with the majority.
