    Check out www.starpath.com.  The site has information on doing
               lunars using the lunar altitude menthod and doing traditional lunars
               with out having to measure the altitude of the bodies.  All examples
               are worked with the StarPilot. At some point David Burch was/is/has
               going to post the Algorithm used by the StarPilot.  You might want
               to send Starpath a note if you dont find this on the web site.
