Calculating ephemerides


Recommended Posts

That sounds interesting - does the book definitely contain complete instructions on how to compute them? I want to be able to start from a position of knowing nothing, with step by step instructions on how to do it right from the start.

Thanks - I will probably buy it if it does.

If you are looking for a 'cook book' that leads you through all the steps, then no it isn't that. It does provide all the formulae you need and some code implementations, but it is up to you to put them all together to calculate the bits you need.

I coded my Moon Phase gadget from Meeus and didn't know anything about to begin with. It was a bit of a learning curve though!
