    Re: lunar attempt
    From: Arthur Pearson

    Steven,
    
    I looked at http://www.moshier.net/ per Dan Allan's suggestion but could
    not find the "aa-54g" program. I would love to be able to produce these
    distance tables, were did you find the program you used to produce them.
    
    Thanks,
    Arthur

    Doug might find a use for the following lunar distance table, which I
    generated using the Moshier aa-54g program. The algorithm that picks out
    the most suitable bodies to list is a bit shaky; still it is doing a
    reasonable job without me putting in much code.
    The + and - signs with the names indicate wether distance is increasing
    or
    decreasing (body to the west or east of moon). Under P.L. you find the
    pro.log, which you are probably not going to use to reduce the
    observations. They will help you to identify the fastest changing
    distances
    because these have the smallest P.L.'s.
    
    Take care, and have a nice watch out there,
    
    Steven
