Hi Ernst and everyone!

I would like to ask if anyone know why the Nakshatras in are different with what other vedic astrologer calculate?(for example the ascendant in 2 degrees Gemini falls in Rohini nakshatra in but other astrologer put this degree in different nakshatra)

I think indicates the most accurate planetary positions, can it be the reason for different nakshatras timing?

It might be due to using different settings for calculating the Year Length fir Nakshatras Dasas. If I am not mistaken, Ernst is recommending Saura (365.2422 days), which is pretty close to the Sidereal (365.2564 days), but I know some astrologers use the Nakshatra (359.0167 days). Maybe just test and see which one makes more sense in the charts, but I think that's where the difference comes from.

There are about 30 ayanamsas that can be used to calculate nakshatras, the most common is lahiri. I dont use that one.
