Abstract:

Both First-Order FO and Modified First-Order MFO astronomic position accuracy figures were determined in this study. Only qualified and experienced observers using refined techniques with Wild T-4 theodolites were evaluated. Only FK4 stars were observed. The Sterneck method of astronomic latitude observaton and reduction was employed. Astronomic longitude observations and reduction techniques used the meridian transit method. Author
