Almanach et publication astronomique en langue anglaise.
Ouvrage en version papier.
This almanac contains positions of the Sun, Polaris and selected bright stars in a form which is convenient for land surveyors who use astronomical observations to determine their geographical position or direction to true north. This edition includes a CD-RoM which contains the almanac in pdf format and the coefficients representing the positions of the Sun and stars in ASCII files. ASCII data files are available on the CD-ROM which contain coefficients for calculating the Greenwich hour angle and declination of all the stars published in The Star Almanac, accurate to about 1 arcsecond. The polynomial coefficients for calculating R (GHA Aries - UT), declination, E and semi-diameter of the Sun are also included.
