ok i want d the subject in:
m - M = 5 (log d) - 5

ok now.
(m - M) + 5 = 5(log d)

((m - M) + 5) / 5 = log d

d = 10 ^ ((m - M) +5) / 5)

is that right?

yes im pretty sure it is. everything i have seen on the equation (its the equation to work out distance from absolute and apparent magnitude) has nothing other than base 10. so assuming base 10 cool :D
