    Re: On lunars generally
    From: Jeremy C
    Date: 2009 Jul 29, 09:44 EDT
    For the record, I've shot 17 lunars in the last month AT SEA on a ship of various bodies and in various conditions (including rolling 20 degrees) with a cumulative average error of +0.26 minutes of arc.  Each of those lunars aveaged 4-7 sights each.
     
    With modern reduction techniques (read computers) it takes a matter of minutes to reduce the sights.  I am certainly more confident of both my determined index error and my chronometer because of my lunar work.
