Back in the day, one the books that I had to get was "
More Uses for the Timex Sinclair 1000: Astronomy", by Eric Burgess and H. J. Burgess. This book was related to the book "Celestial Basic" which had programs for the Apple II. I don't think I typed any of the programs in, but recently I dusted off the book and made a concerted effort to type in a number of the programs. The attached zip file contains 12 programs. They all work with examples from the book. Some fail with current dates. Someone might find them useful.

Thank you for sharing. I had that book as well but I seemed to have lost it in one of my moves and I wanted the programs.

I only got a couple of books with my new (to me) Zeddies, but this was one of them.
Saves me some typing!!!
I also noticed that the "bookmark" the previous owner was using in that book was a piece of paper with hand-written functions..
I kind of recognized one of them, but that stuff was a long time ago....
So I popped part of it into google and... Differential equations!
The previous owner (one of them anyway) was using his Zeddie for Calculus!!!!
