I've used your routine, ELP2000-82B to calculate several values for the Moon. The program results are not quite the same as the given by the ftp server of IMCCE (program test1.exe). However, Here are the numbers for JD=2448724.5:

X = -252119,06106 km
Y =  267821,11903 km
Z = -20748,12777 km
DIS = SQRT( X^2 + Y^2 + Z^2 ) = 368405,56124225 km
LON = ATN2 (X,Y) - PI = 2,32600392668343 rad
LAT = ATN(Z / SQRT( X^2 + Y^2)) = -5,634852939884979E-02 rad

LON = 2,32600392648042 rad
LAT =-5,63602113497991E-02 rad
DIS = 368405,5616255 rad
X = -252118,895114744 km
Y =  267820,942858563 km
Z = -20752,424655222 km

As you can see there's a big difference - specially in the Z coordinate.

Can you please check this out? I would apreciate it very much.

Sorry to bother you.

Kind regards,
