    I made a check of Robert's new table V, just chosing a random entry 36 degs 6 mins, and found on my HP48G the result 2.0511 instead of the tabulated 2.0510. I used the formula log(21.6/(1-cos(x)))

    Then I checked some more entries using excel, from 36d0' to 36d19' and found that 8 out of those 20 results were one unit too small in the 4th decimal. So there seems to be something wrong with the rounding in your program.

    I haven't checked any of the other tables, only the 20 entries mentioned above.
