not exactly sure what you have done, but sounds like it is working for you.

Have a good voyage.

I did the same thing as you, that is using Hc's from UTC 2h55m47s. You got D= 24deg27.8' with your form I got 24deg27.9' as per the attached form.

Here is another solution using the Navigation Spreadsheets from Peter Hakel. A full tool kit of navigation computations. Note his lunar solution in this version requires either measured altitudes, or you have to back the Ha out of the Hc values. The Stark Tables does this with the "Wrong Way" table. See Steve Miller's article on the Stark Tables on how to use that and the other tables.
