With the help of Elena Kartseva (and Tissot’s indicatrices) we created a new formula capable to get x/y coordinates, convert them in a latitude/longitude format and finally return x/y/z values for the light sources. This way, from the next update, Real HDR 1.1 will feature equirectangular perfection and beauty.
