Dear Groh

Please can you send a calculation example for this formula because I tried to solve it but I had a wrong results just to confirm from your side :

Formula where:

L= your latitude in degrees West,( Lat = 25 degrees, 17.7 minutes North)

S= satellite position in degrees west (Eutelsat w3A 7East)

n= your longitude in degrees west,( Long = 51 degrees, 30.5 minutes East)

Note: itan= inverse tan or tan to the minus power one

icos= inverse cos or cos to the minus power of one

Elevation = itan ((cos (icos (L * cos(S-n))) - 0.15116) / sin(icos (cos L * cos(S-n))))

Azimuth = icos (( -tan L / tan (icos (cos L * cos (S-n))))
