Hi
According to the Astro::Telescope manual:

Latitudes and longitudes must be given in radians, altitude and distance in metres, and the parallax constants in units of Earth radii.

are you using decimal degrees?

    Duh! Duh! Duh! You were exactly right! I converted my degrees into radians, and now the script spits out the exact same values as the ones i can see in Stellarium! Thanks!
