    Hi Kermit,

    Yes, it's very close (see attached):
    LAN at 17:17:01
    Lat: N 36d 48.9'
    Lon: W 76d 22.0'

    Dear Peter,

    Thank you very much for having taken your time to perform a sufficiently detailed computation.

    We can now have a reasonably good idea of the time limitations regarding the the "validity" of a 2nd degree/parabolic fit approximation to LAN, in terms of elapsed time to/from Culmination Time.

    I would assume that you also find the very same results as Andres and Kermit on this specific example by Patrick, don't you ?

    Thanks again and

    Best Friendly Regards


    Antoine M. "Kermit" Cou�tte
