I believe InstantTrack 1.00 has a worst-case error of about 0.8 degrees 
(typical error is smaller, of course).

The new InstantTrack 1.50 (still in the works, sorry guys) will be much 
more accurate for the Moon, since 0.8 degrees isn't good enough for the 
big-gun EME'ers. The difference won't be very noticeable for us ordinary 
mortals with satellite antennas.
