I'm trying to run Cassini spacecraft. Unfortunately, the spacecraft appears on
bad side of Saturn, additionally too close to it. I compared my results to
pictures on: http://saturn.jpl.nasa.gov/mission/presentposition/. I'm using ephemeris generated for
name = CASSINI
parent = Saturn
radius = 0.0034
albedo = 0.35
lighting = true
halo = false
color = 1.0,0.9,0.8
tex_map = cassini.png
rot_periode = 24.0
coord_func = comet_orbit
orbit_TimeAtPericenter = 2455854.016683237627
orbit_PericenterDistance = 1.313937118212946E-03
orbit_Eccentricity = 8.505899707257258E-01
orbit_ArgOfPericenter = 7.770967565932847E+01
orbit_AscendingNode = 1.694674170088383E+02
orbit_MeanAnomaly = 3.091446305276572E+02
orbit_Period = 1.781534526019160E+01
orbit_Inclination = 4.351472
Anyone else tried to run Cassini?
You seem to have CSS turned off.
Please don't fill out this field.
OK, I changed Argument of Pericenter 120 degrees rigth and now the spaceship
quite correct position in respect of Saturn.
orbit_ArgOfPericenter = 3.177096756593285E+02
I hope the author or someone else will see this thread. How do I import Cassini into Stellarium? Please tell me step by step. Thanks.
