SUBROUTINE sla_DH2E (AZ, EL, PHI, HA, DEC)
*+
* - - - - -
* D E 2 H
* - - - - -
*
* Horizon to equatorial coordinates: Az,El to HA,Dec
*
* (double precision)
*
* Given:
* AZ d azimuth
* EL d elevation
* PHI d observatory latitude
*
* Returned:
* HA d hour angle
* DEC d declination
*
* Notes:
*
* 1) All the arguments are angles in radians.
*
* 2) The sign convention for azimuth is north zero, east +pi/2.
*
* 3) HA is returned in the range +/-pi. Declination is returned
* in the range +/-pi/2.
*
* 4) The latitude is (in principle) geodetic. In critical
* applications, corrections for polar motion should be applied.
*
* 5) In some applications it will be important to specify the
* correct type of elevation in order to produce the required
* type of HA,Dec. In particular, it may be important to
* distinguish between the elevation as affected by refraction,
* which will yield the "observed" HA,Dec, and the elevation
* in vacuo, which will yield the "topocentric" HA,Dec. If the
* effects of diurnal aberration can be neglected, the
* topocentric HA,Dec may be used as an approximation to the
* "apparent" HA,Dec.
*
* 6) No range checking of arguments is done.
*
* 7) In applications which involve many such calculations, rather
* than calling the present routine it will be more efficient to
* use inline code, having previously computed fixed terms such
* as sine and cosine of latitude.
