Parameters for Solar Physics Observation:
Here the user
will know the necessary elements for the Observation of Solar Physics, i.e.,
L0, B0 e P. This group contains also the information

When this window

This group have two
text boxs, three buttons (month, year and capture) and a graphic board. The
value for the equation of the time for the choosen date will appear formatted
