Most of the formulae for converting coordinates jeean one system to another, precession, planetary abberations, calendars, and similar, which do not change much over time, are perfectly accurate and useful. The planetary orbital models he gives are the older theories of Newcomb, Leverrier, and Gaillot of about a century ago, truncated to keep them short enough for publication, and to fit into the memories of those programmable calculators.
