A Calculate the Apparent or OF Date from J2000 position

  1. Jan 29, 2017 #1
    I am trying to change from J2000 to Apparent positions. Astronomical Algorithms by Jean Meeus addresses but does not give a correct answer. VSOP87 gives the Apparent or Of Date positions in VSOP87C and VSOP87D but I need to calculate directly from J2000. How do I do this?
