The Moon, Planets the Venus and the Jupiter and Stars
The principle of obtaining the positional line from the Moon is the same like from the Sun. However there are certain differences in details:
Example: 22.08.1980 20h 42m 15s hour
Correct: GHA about 42m15s +v, and Dec. about d (table MOON in "Increments and corrections")
Correcting the height: all amendments are on two last RA pages.
You are entering the column with this 25° - 29°, at the vertically enter 27°, at the horizontally enter 40'. You are reading out 59,9'. Go to the bottom with this column far. On crossing of the table the L (Lower limb) and numbers 57,9 off the table HP (horizontal parallax) read the amendment 5,2'.
Add it everything:
Attention! If you are measuring the uphill edge up, differences are two:
1. You can in the month through a few days do two positional lines at the same time to the Sun and the Moon, so you have the position at once then.
2. Always check in the Moon whether his declension is growing whether is decreasing (you are adding the d amendment then or you are taking), because his declension changes less more every two weeks from north on south and the other way round.
3. You can obtain the latitude from the Moon if you catch his culmination. You are taking the time of the culmination from the table Moon, Mer. Pass. Upper. Calculations like by the culmination of the Sun.
In practice lines are drawn from Venus and Jupiter, which are very bright. Principle - as at by the Sun. You are taking data on the left RA off Venus and Jupiter tables.
