the TDRS 2nd and 3rd generation satellite found these antennas. I put them slightly transparent to be true to reality. There remains the first generation where there is also a problem; here it is a forgotten surface vectorized in the original file. the body of the 1st generation was octagonal and t...

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

Gironde... in COSMOS 2237 SSC file... TLE DATA from NORAD gives the orbital elements for the Earth Mean Equator... not for Ecliptic... so there in SSC file no need to write Orbit frame... Celestia will use the Earth Mean Equator by default...

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

Hi Toutatis. I just tested your TESS model, very nice, but it has a bit cahotic rotation. So I checked the ssc file, and I found that Orientation is "[ 250 1 0 0 ]" instead of "270 1 0 0" that produces a rotation around TESS longitudinal axis. What is the correct axis angle, 250...

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

I looked at these 3 sites and I find that they give conflicting definitions even in their own lines. They talk about the 2 focus points but we never know them. If you know the definition of semimajoraxis that goes well with Celestia, I'm interested. Hi Gironde... problem only that I do not know Eng...

Hi Toutatis.
Can you please upload TESS ssc file?
And, just curious, why this one is 3DS only while your previous one was cmod too?
Thanks a lot.
