Computation by Degrees Explained
This point can be identified astronomically according to the position of the sun.
Where is the sun 72 minutes before sunrise, on an equinox day, in Yerushalayim? The answer is, 16.1 degrees below the horizon. As such, Alos can be defined for all settings, as the time when the sun 
reaches 16.1 degrees below the horizon.
According to this interpretation, Alos HaShachar has the same appearance during all seasons of the year, anywhere in the world.
This example involves Alos HaShachar, but the same method can be applied to calculate Tzes HaKochavim and Misheyakir  
by interpreting the figures of the Gemara and Poskim in this way.
