Measurement of c using Bradley and 1905 SRT aberration models

This question is easy. Just see the first few paragraphs of : http://www.mathpages.com/rr/s2-05/2-05.htm

It is for total aberration of a star located perpendicular to the earths orbit, which means 23.5 degrees from the celestial pole (appx. = polaris). The aberration for such a star will vary between pure declination aberration twice a year, and pure right ascension declination twice a year, with mix in between.

This much has already been explained to you several times. What I and others were not prepared to do is explain detailed tables and formulas in the Almanac, especially because it is not available on line and none of us over in that forum have a copy of it. The hope was that someone here might be familiar with it or own a copy.
