Table 5. Radices of the Sun and the lunar node
Na, f. 15v: Tabula solis et capitis draconis
Nu, f. 30r: Tabula veri motus capitis draconis
Va, f. 186v: Tabula radicis domini nostri Iesu Cristi incarnati
Ed. 1495, f. a7r: Tabula radicum
Ed. 1526, f. 7r: Tabula radicum
This table has the same layout as that of Table 4, and gives the radices for the Incarnation, 1400, and 1440: see Table 5. Ed. 1526 adds entries for 1480 and 1500. As was the case with Table 4, Regiomontanus only listed the mean motion of the lunar node and presented it as the complement in 360° to the entries in Table 5. However, Regiomontanus has 4,58;4,18° for the Incarnation and 3,39;54,34° for 1400, whereas he should have 4,28;4,18° and 3,9;54,34°, respectively.
