Grand merci, Antoine!
Yes, as soon as I used the correct data (GHAVenus=15°38,1';dGHA=15°00,1'/hr; DecVenus=24°20,2';dDec=0°00,6'/hr) my intercepts all became reasonable: ~1,5nm away. They could be better if I knew my HoE more precisely and if I took additional corrections to the refraction correction for the actual weather conditions. Alas, I'm yet to carry a barometer and thermometer with me.
I think I must put some marks on the used pages of the NA - as a reminder where I was the last time.
Warm regards and the best health wishes,
