    Re: slide rule sight reduction accuracy

    Very nice! I don't have a copy of Geoffrey's long term almanac but since
    he developed it I am sure it is a good one. I will have to contact him
    to see how I can get a copy. I noticed that you added a rule for when Y
    < 54', a case I didn't think about on my form. I did notice one error,
    however. "If 1> H > 90 assume another lon" should be "If 1 > H > 89."
    
    Thank for the improved form.
