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. http://clayhole.com/obs/2012da14.jpg
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.
