Re: Calculating Barycentre RA/Dec of hyper-wide Binaries?

Well, search engines almost never give me what I'm looking for, so when someone says they get all they need from search engines, I find it genuinely difficult to believe them. I try every combination of terms and expressions that I can think of, and my success rate is still only 10% at best. So eith...

God damn it guys!

Re: Custom Science-Fiction Pictures from Celestia

Last night, I posted on facebook a gimped photo where I replaced the moon with two moons of one of my planets', and my father made an off-hand(?) comment about them orbiting each other, although I told him they each had their own circumplanetary orbits. But then today, it had me wondering, might tha...

Re: No more file updates from me

Shoot. :(

Sad to see ya go; not to mention I was one of those few who actually valued the updates on the extrasolar files.

Regardless, thank you, and best of luck, with whatever the future holds for you.

Can someone write a full tutorial on reference frames?

What the title says. :P Basically, the wikibooks page on reference frames just isn't cutting it, and neither are any of the other documentation on them on the entire internet cutting it either.

The next goal that I am going to do with this addon, is to convert it over to the other 3D space simulator, Space Engine http://en.spaceengine.org/ I guess everybody here have heard about Space Engine.

Re: QT5

Unfortunately, Celestia development has come to a complete halt, and has been for many, many months now. Only updates are the extrasolar.stc/.ssc files, to keep up with Kepler et al.

Sorry. :(

Calculating Barycentre RA/Dec of hyper-wide Binaries?

I've noticed that a number of stars in Celestia containing two or more stellar components that have barycenters defined, but without orbital data; being instead placed by the traditional RA and Dec coordinates and distance. So, how does one calculate the barycenter in situations like that; and also ...

Re: Who wants to kill the forum?

Totally speculating here, but this seems to have begun a little after the developer(s) shifted their attention to Cosmographia, and I suspect the nonexistent moderation here was probably to drive off the Celestia users still dedicated to Celestia. Again, pure speculation (and paranoia, admittedly :l...

Re: how can i edit the "stars.dat"?

When you say "included", do you mean it is with the celestia directories on SVN, or is it entirely separate from Celestia and happens to be on SourceForge as well?
