Seconds". I cannot find this on the Astro-Physics web site. Can someone

help? Thkx...joe :)

Joe,



I may be way off-base but I recall something around 6 min and 20 sec ...

or 380 seconds to answer your question (in seconds).



If you have some other figure, please let me now for my information.



Anthony.

There is. The AP website tells you that there are 225 teeth on the RA worm.

What soes this mean? It means that there are 225 revolutions of the worm

for each 360 degree rotation of the axis. That means the worm rotation is

exactly 360/225 = 1.6 rotations per degree. From that you can easily calculate

the time since everyone (every amateur) knows the stellar motion in seconds

per degree, which is of course the sidereal rate.

Joe,



I short-changed you by just under three seconds. Thanks for the precise

figure and which I will now file into longterm RAM. :-)



Anthony.

1.6 degrees/rotation = 96 arc-min/rotation -> sidereal rate = 15

arc-min/min -> 96/15 = 6.4 minutes -> 6 min 24 seconds ....
