|Summary||0000037: Observer position in space|
|Description||I'm aware that CDC is basically oriented to amateur observer's using telescope. |
However, I'm also interesting in possibilitie to allow setting observer's position in space or any object in space. For example, observer's position in Earth orbit, looking to the rendered Earth during Solar eclipse and tracking Moon's shadow. Or on IO, looking on Jupiter, etc.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
Yes this is very interesting.
But this is not the goal of CdC and Celestia already do that very nicely.
The solution I will look for is to add a "View in Celestia" popup menu entry that launch a cel: url for the selected object at the current time.
Yes, I have tried Celestia long time ago, it is very interesting product. However, it require quite large ammount of free space to be installed, extensive downloading objects from web, as well as more phisical memory and 3D accelerator to be run without problems. Since I'm concentrated on software development, hardware I work on relatively old.
It is interesting deoes math implemented in CDC allow it, since it is enough to translate local 3D coorinate system from earth to another object or positions in space (assuming that Sun is a central coordinate system). However, that depends on how basis is designed. However, generealy speaking, every system can be translated to another wit some accurate loosing. As this feature is only a optional, precisioni degradation is not an issue. I'm interesting in producing it when free time allow.
"...rendered Earth during Solar eclipse..."
This is almost implemented in new version of Solar system info...
Then, this old suggestion can be closed.
Whoa! ten years ...
Nice you can work on the implementation now.
