Sounds like something went wrong when you did the computations. Can you give all the details?

One possibility is that you used an assumed position very far from your actual position. Another is that you used Pub 249 incorrectly, which is very understandable as I mess it up all the time. Make sure you use the correct table, including same name vs. contrary name.

So, what's your AP, what star, and what time of observation?
