S1, S3, & SX to Drygarnfawr Cairns
S1 and S3 Llananno to DrygarnFawr alignments extrapolated to lunar standstill limiting positions.From the two photographically established backsights S1 and S3 we may extrapolate to the approximate positions of further pertinent stances which might have been employed in the complex calculatory procedures necessary to find the true position and timing of a Southern Major Lunar Standstill
All alignments shown are for the upper limb of the Moon when the dead centre of the lunar disc has the declinations given.
S1 to Drygarnfawr East Cairn declination deficiency.s1 llananno to Drygarnfawr East cairn has been established as having a declination deficiency from the Southern Major lunar standstill of exactly two apparent mean diameters of the Moon = (e+i)-2D = 28° 01'.
See S1 Drygarnfawr.
Markers for this deficiency position have been found at other lunar standstill sites. See S1 Llananno to Y Glog, Montgomeryshire. These may be early warning markers as this stance would bring the Moon down on the East Cairn horizon marker some 30 hours before the standstill proper.
Alternatively these may be anchor positions for the calculations necessary to locate the peak of the standstill parabola.
S3 Llananno to Drygarnfawr East Cairn declination deficiency.S3 Llananno to Drygarnfawr East cairn has been established as having a declination deficiency from the lunar standstill very near the 4g position as imputed by Alexander Thom for the sagitta of the parabolic curve of the path of the Moon at a Major Standstill.
