Any Ephemeris can get the job done on one level - but Astrolabe's, has a few extras, simply because of the way in which Hand approaches the topic: accurate, even-handed, positive-minded, charge-neutral, and extremely well-informed -- on this topic and many others (including the science informing astronomy). It is published in both noon and midnight versions, btw, so pay attention if it is important to you WHICH you purchase -- THIS one is midnight.
Either would be fine for my level of usage - yours, too, if you're relatively new to the subject, unless you're working with a teacher who has a preference (s/he may want everyone in a class to have the SAME, so ask before you buy anything).
Regardless of noon or midnight, for my money, anything Hand writes about or publishes is my FIRST choice on the topic (and I'm not alone in that thought, btw). So that includes this particular Ephemeris.
FIRST, you get Hand's preface - that in itself is practically worth the price of the book. I learn something new every time I read anything written by this man.
He begins by detailing the changes/additions in this version of the World Ephemeris for the [first half of the] 21st century: 1/1/2001 - 12/31/2050 -- containing considerably more info than the World Ephemeris for the 20th Century:
* Moon both 00:00 E.T. and 12:00 E.T.
* geocentric positions of (and daily declinations for) the 4 major asteroids and Chiron in addition to the "normal" planetary bodies,
* Void-of-Course Moon data each month (with last aspect of the Moon in each sign plus time of entry into the next)
- to name a few.Read more ›
