The entries for 27d 13;18,36h, the length of the anomalistic month, are also derived from the standard parameters in Alfonsine astronomy, for

311;49,19° = 2 ■ (27d 13;18,36h ■ 12;11,26,41°/d) - 360°, 3;4,12° = (27d 13;18,36h ■ 13;10,35,1°/d) - 360°, 4;31,45° = (27d 13;18,36h ■ 13;13,45,39°/d) - 360°, where 12;11,26,41°/d, 13;10,35,1°/d, and 13;13,45,39°/d are, respectively, the mean motions in elongation, lunar longitude, and argument of lunar latitude, used in the Parisian Alfonsine Tables.

Na, f. 19r: Tabula radicis Nu, f. 23v: Tabella radicum Va, f. 190v: Tabula radicis Ed. 1495, f. b7v: Tabula radicum Ed. 1526, f. 15v: Tabula radicum

This table for the radices of the Moon when its anomaly is 0° has four columns: see Table 15.
