Wikipedia's definition of astrochronology is:

"Astrochronology is the dating of sedimentary units by calibration with astronomically tuned timescales, such as Milankovic cycles,1[2] or even sunspot cycles. When used in concert with radiometric dating, it allows the resolution of timescales to a high degree of accuracy. If orbital precession cycles are identified, the dating error can be as low as 21,000 years."

Question:

Is this method really used and does it have a good reputation foramong field geologists?

Once I failed an exam where 1/4 of the points were for a question to explain what is astrochronology. I didn't know anything about that -and truly I hadn't studied a lot-, so I failed narrating an extensive movie about the Solar System and meteorites.

When I went back home,In my textbook I read:

"Astrochronology is the dating of sedimentary units by calibration with astronomically tuned timescales, such as Milankovic cycles,1[2] or even sunspot cycles.
