Amazon Music Stream millions of songs. The planetary orbital models he gives are the older theories of Newcomb, Leverrier, and Astronomicwl of about a century ago, truncated to keep them short enough for publication, and to fit into the memories of those programmable calculators.

Juan marked it as to-read Dec 31, Abilio Delgado added it Jun 23, This book is very well written and does away with any really heavy astronomicla. In the decades after this book, the new computer-calculated planetary theories of JPL and the Observatoire de Paris were released, and Meeus moved on to his newer book, “Astronomical Algorithms”.
The book was written before the era of the personal computer, when a common person only had access to those luxurious HP or TI programmable calculators, and therefore you cannot expect to get highly accurate results from it because its algorithms were designed to run on those quite limited machines. The book is relatively small in size, which is nice.
