This is a digital copy of a book tliat was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public doinain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vaiy country to counti^y. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the

PREFACE. 

THE CommilTioners of Longitude, in pur- 
ftiancc of the Powers veiled in ihcm by 
Act of Parliament, prefent the Pubiick with 
the Nautical Almanac and Astronomical 
Ephemeris for the Year 1776, being the 
Tenth Impreffion, to be continued annually ; a 
Work which muft greatly contribute 10 the Im- 
provement of Aftronomy, Geography, and Na- 
v^ation. This Ephemeris contains every Thing 
effential to general Ufe liiat is to be found in 
any Ephemeris hitherto publifhed, with many 
other ufcful and intercfting Particulars never yet 
oflirrcd to the Pubiick in any Work of this Kind. 
The Tables of the JMoon had been brought by the 
late Profeflbr Maybk of Gotcingen to a fufficienc 
Exa&nefs to determine the Longitude atSea, within 
a Degree* as appeared by the Trials of feveral 
PeHons who made Ufe Of them. The Difficulty 
and Length of the neceflary Calculations Icemed 
the only Obftacles to hinder them from becoming 
of general Ufe : To remove which tliis Ephl- 
MERis was made; the Mariner being Itercby re- 
lieved from the NecelTity of calculating the Moon's 
Place from the Tables, and afterwards computing 
the Dirtance to Seconds by Logarithms, which 
arethe principal and only very delicate Part of the 
Calculus ; fo that tlic iinding the Longitude by 
the Help of the Ephemeris is row in a Manner 
reduced to the Compuution of the Time, an Ope- 
ririon equal to that of an Azimuth, and the Cor- 
reftionof cheDiftanccon account of Refraflionand 
• Parallax, which is atfo rendered very caly by cither 
of the Two Methods invented by Mr. Lyons and 
Mr. DjJNTKORNf , and publifhed smong theTables 



P R,E F A C E. 

requifite to be u fed with theEpHEMERis ; or bj 
either of the Two Methods annexed to the Efhe- 
MERis of 1772, being both rmprovcments of the 
Method which I formerly ]HibIifl»ed in the British 
Mariner's Guide and PitiLosoPHicAL Traks- 
ACTioNs, the Firft by mylVlf, and the Second by 
Mr. George Witchkil; but itill more fo by the 
Geveral Tables for corrcding the apparent 
Diftancc of the Moon and a Star or the Sun from 
the Effcfls of licfraiiion and Parallax, computed 
at great Expencc by Order of theConiminioners of 
Longitude, and publilhud under tlie Care of D^-. 
Shepherd, Plunitan Frofcflbr of Aflranomy and 
expcrinKntal Philolbphy atCAMSRiDCE, in 1772. 

By Dcfire of the Commiflioners of Longitude, 1 
drew up [he ExpIan;uton and Uli: ot the Articles 
cojuaincrd in thi; I'-hhemeris, and the IniVructions, 
with Examples, for finding tijc Longiuidc at Sea 
by the Help of the fame. I alio tollefted and cal- 
cuLued iheSixtecii FirlfcPages of Tables requifite to 
be u!ed with the Ephemiris, and computed the 
Table of proporiional Logarithms, which feemed to 
me ablblutely neceflary to clear this Method of any 
remaining Difficulty, and added Explanations of all 
the Tabks, and a Correction, p. 49 and 50, which 
may be applied by the Curious to the ESeft of 
Refra<5lion on the Moon's Diftaiice from a Sur, 
found by Mr. Lyons, or any other Method, oa 
account of the Barometer and Thermometer. 



All the Calculations of the Ephemiris relating 
to the Sun and Moon were made from Mr. Mayer's 
lafl mantifcrif t Tables, received by thcBoard of 

Longi- 



PREFACE. 

Longitude after ; his Dcceafc, yvhlch have been 
printed under my Infpeiftten, ahd publiflicd 
in 1770. The Cdculacions of the Plajiets were 
made from Dr. IlAitEr's Tables j and the 
£cliplcs of Jupiter's Firft and Second SatelUtcs 
fi-om the Tables of Mr. Warcentin, publiflicd 
by M. De la Lande in f^S9i ^"^^ thofc of the 
Third and Fourih Sacellites from 'i'ables of the 
fame farther improved by Mr. Warsbntiw, and 
annexed, the fim, to the Navtical Almanac of 
1771, and tlic other to the Comnoissance des 

MoUVEMIiNTS CtLISTEb of I 766. 

All the Articles of the Ephemeris were com- 
puted by Two fcparatc Pcrfons, and examined by 
a Third, except the Moon's Longitiide, Latitude, 
Right Afccnfton, Declination, Semidiametcr, and 
Parallax, which, for Noon, were compuccd by One 
Pcrfofl, and for Midnight by anotner, and the 
Truth of thele Calculations afceruiined by means 
of DifixTcnccs, which, for the Moon's Longitude, 
were carried as far as the Fourth Order.

EXPLANATION and U&E 

OF THE . 

ARTICLES 

Contained in Uie 

Astronomical and Nautical Ephemeris; 



IT may be proper firil to pwmifc-, that all the Cafculationi 
are niade according to apparent Time by the Meridian of 
the Royal Obfervatory ^t Greeiiwicli. Tliey are likewlfe 
adapted to apparent Noon, except where lliey are otiierwifa 
diflinguiftied, as the Eclipfes and Configurations of Jupiter'i 
SateUitcsi the Moon's Places, iSc, Computed for Midnigiit, 
and the DiftancCs of Ihe Moon from the Siin and Stars for 
every tliird Hour; whtfli are all computed to the apparent 
Tillies fct down. 

Apparent Time Is tbat deduced immediately from the Sun, 
whether from the Oblervationofhis paflingthe Meridian, frran 
his- Altitude bblerved afaDiftance from the Meridian, of from 
bis' obferred Rtftig pr Setting. This Time is diflerent from 
that fliefrn by Cloclis and Watches well regulated at Land, 
*tiich is called equated or mean Time. This will be ex- 
jplained when we come to treat of theEquationof Time. 

^ The Day is here fuppofcd, according to the Method of Af- 
ironomers, to begin at Noon, or laHoiirs later tlan the 
civil Day of the fime Denomination, and to be counted op to 
24 Hours, or the fuccceding Noon, when the next Day begins. 
Thus the Day of the Monlli and die Hcrur of the Day are the 
fame in this Method as in the civil Account at Noon, and 
fmm Noon till Midnight ; but from Midnight till Koon they 

r- * H dltferi 



^ [ H« 3 

^ffer ; for wliercas in the civil Account .a &efti Day is fup- 
pored to begin at Midiiight» aad tlie Hours to begin ovet 
ag.iiii, ill tliis Method the Day h llill continued beyond Mid- 
night, and the Reckoning of the Hours is continued up to 24* 
Thus theDlitances put down to January 10, i; Hours, belong 
to Janiiary 1 1 ni Tliree in the Morning by civil Reckoning. 

There are 12 Pages for every Month. Tlie firll Column of 
the firli Page of each Montli contains the Day of the Month ; 
tlie Second, Hie Day of the Week expreifcd concifely by tlic 
itutial 'Letter or I-etters, Su. ftaUidiiig^Jor Su'iday, M. for 
Monday, Tu. for Tuefday, W. for VVeduefday, Th. for 
Thurfday, F. for Fiiday, and Sa. for Saturday : Tlie third Co- 
lumn exliibits the Sundays and Feftivah of the CliurCll of Eng- 
land, and oihcr remarkable Days: Tlic laft Column Ihews at 
Top the Moon's Piiafes, cr the Times of new and full Moon, 
and of tlie firft and laft Quarter, or two Quadratures with tiie 
Sun : Beneatli arc contained mifcellaneous Phxnomena, name- 
ly," Eclipfcs of tlic Sun and Moon, and Occultations of Planets 
or fixed Stars not lefs tiian the fourtli Magnitude, by the Moon, 
as they Jliould happen at Greenwicti by the Tables; the Con- 
junrtionsof the Moon with all Stars not Ids than the fourth 
Magnitude, wliich can be Occultations any where cm tht 
Glo'bc, between the Latitudes of 60°. North and 40°. South : 
The Coiyuilttions, Oppoiitions and Quadratures of tlie fuperior 
pLineth' with the Sun ; aiid the Conjunctions and'greatell Kloa- 
catiotw of the inferior- I'hnets from tJie Sun> the £ntratice of. 
t.ic Sutvhito the feveral Signs, and any otlicr remarkable V\\x- 
iiomciia. 

The Stats arc expreifcd by Bayer's Charafters of Reference. 
Thu Cpnjunciinn of the ^hxm or a Planet with a Star, is 
dentsted by prefixing tlie Charafter of the Mvon or Plsiet 
tp that vi The Star, the Time of tfei Conjun^ton being- 
placed hnmcdiatcly after- The Cafe is the (amp with Refpedt;. 
to the Occullation of a Star or Planet by the Moon, only this is _ 
further dill iiigiii Died by the Addition of Im. or Imaieriion, to! 
fignify the Difappearance bdihid the Moon ; and Em, or Emei^ 
iion, to Jignify lhcRe-ap^x:aianccofthefame, Thus S"" 9 «f^VP*

The Occultitions fet down are tliofe only vilrble at Green- 
wjdi; and the Circumftanccs will not ditier very widely in 
mod Parts of the Kingdom; but in very dilbnt Phces thev ■ 
will differ very much, owing to the Change of the iVItxan's 
Parallax, or it may become no Occultat(on at all : The like 
may be faid of Eclipfes of the Sun. 

Eclipfes of the Sun, and OcculKitions of fixed Stars by the 
Moon, if obferved in Places whnfe Latitude and Lorgllude 
are well determined^ may be applied to the Correftion cf 
the lunar Tables ^ but if made in Places whofe Latitude only 
h >\ell knmvn, may be applied to the Determination <,f the 
Liiijgitiide of tlie PIdce ; but for tliis Purpofe an accuratt; Cal- 
culati'Jn muft be made of tlie Moon's ParaHaxes in Loticjifude 
and Latitude, wliich makes this Mctliod of fettling tlie Longi- 
tudes of Placca, though a very accurate niic, lefs convenient 
in U£p for Perfnns not mucli vcrfed in agronomical Calculi- ' 
tions, However, this ougiit not to difcourage Trnvelleni or 
Mariner^ from endeavouring to make thefe Obfervatiohs as' 
onen and as carefully as poffible, wlien tliej' fli ill- happen to 
be at any Place whofe Longjtude they have Reafon to think 
Iras not been at all or but inditfcrently determined'; lincc th? 
neccfl;iry Cumulations may be made at any Thiie afterwards by 
tiiemlch-es, at leifure, or rcferr?4 to the skill of Aftronome;* 
and IVhitii^inaticians. 

Eclipfes of the Moon are not !iibl,e to this Inconvenience ; 
the Longitude of any Place, where an Eclipfe has Ixrcn ob- 
ferved, being deduced imniediatcly by taking the Difference ■ 
o^the Time of the Obfervation and ihat fct down in the 
Ephemeris, arid converting it into Degrees, at the Rite of 
I J to One. Hour, iS^c. or more briefly by Table Pages 6, 7, 8. 
of thi;. Tabids requifitc to be ufed with (he Eplieincri^ But 
as tiiii Ecgiifliing or Ending of an Eclipfe of ihc Moon cannot 
lie gene'rflly oblervecl nearerthan One Minute, and fontctiines 
Two or Three Minates of Time, the Longitudes of Places can- 
not .be certainly determined, by this. Mctliod from a iingle' 
Obfcivatiou of tlie Beginning or End nearer than a Degree. 
It is nnneccllary to mention th,rt even this Point cf Exiidinefs 
will often be of great Service, If boili the Beginning- and 
y,nd of the Eclipie be obfcrvetl, a confidcrably grearer De- 
gree- of Exadlnofs will be altiiincd. 

■ The Conjunitions of tl'-C TVIoon with thp Planets, or fixed 

Stars not Icfs than tht; foiyrh Magnitude, which may yimc 

Occuliations in foine inhabited Piirts oftheOhibc, arc cvi-

j-iovc Occ.:llatinRS and aie carefully obfen'cd, will afford ^ 
certain Meaqs of dctcrminiiig die Longitude cf the flace of 
Obfervation. 

The Da\-5 of the Oppofitions, Qnadjature?, ts"c. of the Pin-. 
nets with Refped to the Sun, are Time's at which they ought 
lo be obfened in fixed Ohfen-^itories, for fettling the Elemcula 
cf their Orbits by a Series of feveral Years Obfervalions. 

The Two firil Columns of the Second Page of the Motitlf 
contain tiic Day of the Month and Week as before; iiext 
follow ibe Sun's Xongttude, right Afcenfion in Time, Dcfli- 
ration, and tlte Equation of Time, with the Difference fioni 
Day to Day.

The Moon's Longitude and Latitude ^rc ufcd in computing 
her Diflances from the Sun and Stars contained in the Four laK 
Pages of the Month, as well as in the Appulfes to Stiirs]x>inted 
out in Page 1, and, jointly with her Parallax and Semidia- 
meter, are necelTary for computing the Kclipfcs of tlie Sun 
and Moon, and the Occultations of fixed Stars and Planets by 
the Moon. They alfofecilitate the Calcuhition of the Lon- 
^tude of atiy Place from an Eclipfe of the Sun, or an Oc- 
cultation of a Star or Planet by tlic Moon obferved : Or, if 
"tlie Meridian be well known, the Parallax and Semidiameter 
ferve to deduce the Mofjn's true Place in the Heavens from the 
Obfervation, which compared with that given by the Ephemeris 
thews the Error of the Tables, whatever it he at tliat Time. 
The Moon's Semidiameter and Paralbx are applied in cored^- 
ing almoit all Obfer\'ations of the Moon. Tlie logiftic Ix>

Subftraft each Diilance from the following, for the firil 
Differences, and prefix the Sign — , ■ if the Dillances de- 
creafe. Subllraft each lirft Difference thus found from the fol- 
lowing one of thefame Order, for the fecond Differences : And 
in like Manner fubftrati the firft zd Difference from the fol- 
lowing for tlie third Difference ; applying tlie Signs as in 
algebraic Subftraflion. Denote the firft or laft firft Difference 
by b, the firft or laft fecond Difference by c ; according as the 
Interpolation to be made is for the firft or laft iz Hours, 
denote alfo the third Difference by d ; and, a being put to 
fignify the Diftance at the Beginning of tlie Interval, the in- 
terpolated Diftaiices will be an follows : 

At 3d Hour of firft Interval 
At 6th Hour of firft Interval 
At gth Hour of firft Interval 

Or 
At 3d Hour of laft Interval 
At 6th Hour of laft Interval 
At 9th Hour of laft Interval 

In adapting tliefe Formula* to Numbers, great Care muft 
be taken about the right Application of the S^s. Thus if 
b, c ai dJs Negative, apply the Number expreflmg the Value 
of that Term erf the Formula where it is fourui with a contrary 
Sign to that of the Formula,. 

Let me add in this Place, that if in filling up the firft and 
laft Intervals, a new fecond Difference has been fuppofed in 
arithmetical Progreffion with the Two given ones, in order to 
take a Mean between it and the firft or laft fecond Difference, 
the Interpolation at the Middle of the Interval or 6th Hour 
will be had true, the fame as if the above Formulse had been 
ufed: But at tlie Interpolation of the firft and third Quar- 
ter there will be an Error of tit ^^"'^ Difference; which 
will becorre^ted, by applying + ^J^dortlurd Difference, to 
Number found at the fird Quarter of tlie Interval, and — -j^d 
to that found at the third Quarter of the Interval ; equally 
tlie fame whether it be the firft or laft interval.
