In there an easy way, on the 50g, to convert a decimal angle into

hours and vice versa?

For example I have 16,69231389, which converted yields 16h41m32s.

Use the \->HMS command, under the TIME menu.

16.69231389 \->HMS

returns 16.4132330004, which is the 50g's awkward way of representing

16h41m32.330004s.

Denoting integral digits by upper case and fractional digits by lower

case,

The HMS\-> command converts HH.hhhhhhhhhh to HH.MMSSssss and

\->HMS converts HH.MMSSssss back to HH.hhhhhhhhhh, although there are

sometimes minor roundoff errors in combining them, i,e,. the original is

not quite restored by the two operations in sequence.
