I made myself most of the algorithms I use.
The tracking with my telescope works very well.
My programs are written in QBasic (VERSION 3)
One has to be mistrustful with the versions 4 and over
for what concerns the trigonometric functions.
But QB3 gives very good results.

My pleasure, avec plaisir,  Alphonse
