Starry Night Pro Plus 8 > Moon > Show Info > Elongation Error (Answer: Logged For Review)

The elongation of the Moon (in Show Info) is in error. (As it has been since at least Starry Night Pro Plus 6).

    Hi Sven, 

    Based upon what other reliable source are you comparing this data in Starry Night Pro Plus 8?

    Hi Keiron,

    I give some examples for elongation of the moon during the lunar phases during October, compared with MICA and SkySafari 6 Pro:

    First Quarter Oct 5, 16:47 UT shows elongation 152°East (MICA: 90° East, SkySafari: 89,9°)

    Fullmoon Oct 13, 21:08 UT shows elongation 170° East (MICA: 174° West, SkySafari: 174,3°)

    Last Quarter Oct 21, 12:39 UT shows elongation 132° East (MICA: 90° West, SkySafari: 90,3°)

    New Moon Oct 28, 03:38 UT shows elongation 65,6° West (MICA: 4° North, SkySafari: 4,1°)

    Thanks, Sven!  We'll have developers look at that for you.
