Hi Alex,
I have some (very immature) code for astronomical algorithms:
http://www.squeaksource.com/AdAstra
The main implamentation is the VSOP87D.
This is tested against the very same data coming from
http://cdsarc.u-strasbg.fr/viz-bin/Cat?cat=VI/81

There are utilities classes to compute polinomials (but not
sparse ones, given that in astronomical algorithms you do not
usually meet them...) and angles...

I was not (yet) interested in interfacing with external libraries, but more
on the algorithms themselves.

Have a look and let me know. BEWARE: code is very IMMATURE.
Bye
Enrico
