Re: Plotting 2012 DA14 in Guide correctly

Hi Bill & all,

In preparing for this occasion, I rigged the probes.dat file in Guide to use JPL osculating elements of 2012 DA14.

Animation works fine, but generating a trail and ephemeris results in a not-so-useful outcome. Guide just grabs the element set for the initial time and use it for the duration. E.g. shows the result of using three different starting times.

I've seen this previously but can't remember if I made a fuss about it then. I hope this is fixable.

Kind regards,
