Favorite Celestia Views (a cel://URL Repository)

Post #1by don » 19.05.2004, 19:54

[ Sadly, Celestia's internal coordinate system has changed since Don recorded these URLs. When used by Celestia v1.6.0 or later, URLs recorded by Celestia v1.4 place the viewpoint more than 200AU from the desired position.

URLs which work with V1.6.0 and later are available in Jogad's post at

Here are some of mine...

Sync Orbit Earth at North Pole looking up:
cel://SyncOrbit/Sol:Earth/2003-07-01T15:05:51.48206?x=LlUoBwvN8kbADA&y=+eSFSbFubQ&z=FTQamzDthNoP&ow=0.519498&ox=-0.333314&oy=0.431749&oz=-0.657736&track=Polaris&select=Polaris&fov=84.854164&ts=0.000000&rf=1183&lm=2

Hubble Space Telescope:
cel://Follow/Sol:Earth:Hubble/2003-06-25T22:57:06.83447?x=Je6A0PC+A8W+DA&y=y9MJeeThFA&z=MAZ9ltFNqQYQ&ow=0.720340&ox=0.062928&oy=0.688935&oz=0.050195&select=Sol:Earth:Hubble&fov=74.854973&ts=0.000000<d=0&rf=403&lm=0

"Chase" the Moon with the Earth in view and time sped up:
cel://Chase/Sol:Earth:Moon/2003-08-21T06:52:13.46379?x=MEnpHzvMcjbLDA&y=bGaLyzeEfg&z=tSb1nY+r83gI&ow=0.134317&ox=-0.116625&oy=-0.982872&oz=-0.048167&select=Sol:Earth:Moon&fov=11.232885&ts=10000.000000<d=0&rf=2711&lm=49152

Here is an example of "Chasing" the International Space Station as it passes over the southwest U.S.A.:
cel://Chase/Sol:Earth:ISS/2003-08-18T18:22:00.50613?x=Rxar44rgPtTKDA&y=Hm5zfcxKFg&z=5S0VG5mqnxcJ&ow=-0.014557&ox=0.125254&oy=0.991866&oz=0.017389&select=Sol:Earth:ISS&fov=20.172722&ts=10.000000<d=0&rf=2711&lm=49216

A closer view of the ISS:
cel://Chase/Sol:Earth:ISS/2003-08-18T16:37:40.92238?x=QO/LBT1WltHKDA&y=BZ8v5eYeHA&z=eIK69cCeARwJ&ow=-0.162169&ox=0.470633&oy=0.847726&oz=0.183212&select=Sol:Earth:ISS&fov=83.034142&ts=10.000000<d=0&rf=2967&lm=49152

"Following" the ISS provides quite a different perspective:
cel://Follow/Sol:Earth:ISS/2003-08-19T00:24:04.39120?x=CXQ5i5ZQ9t3KDA&y=21xfnfIhGg&z=ANUFePvmhAkJ&ow=-0.719911&ox=-0.444001&oy=0.511589&oz=0.151222&select=Sol:Earth:ISS&fov=68.312462&ts=100.000000<d=0&rf=2967&lm=49216

"Locking" ISS and Earth is similar to "Chasing" ISS:
cel://PhaseLock/Sol:Earth:ISS/Sol:Earth/2003-08-18T18:18:31.55462?x=UU5NeFeULtTKDA&y=OAawihL8Fg&z=mMJ0Da9JARgJ&ow=-0.034557&ox=-0.179894&oy=0.968668&oz=0.167710&select=Sol:Earth&fov=96.122467&ts=10.000000<d=0&rf=2967&lm=49216

Moon orbiting Earth (starting from the lower right corner):
cel://Follow/Sol:Earth/2003-09-08T15:36:16.17625?x=IGbgoHFF/RPNDA&y=6sEjCL2tNQ&z=TZe8QsgxgPkD&ow=0.590026&ox=0.108706&oy=0.797316&oz=-0.065877&select=Sol:Earth&fov=25.745958&ts=10000.000000<d=0&rf=2711&lm=49152

Follow Earth with Orbits displayed (Sun orbits Earth):
cel://Follow/Sol:Earth/2004-06-21T17:15:34.78215?x=AIhauvLCP7GoDA&y=GCHOXO2H12G4&z=Vcr5a+07XcnH/////////w&ow=0.365811&ox=0.459924&oy=0.685501&oz=0.429815&select=Sol:Earth&fov=25.745953&ts=1000000.000000<d=0&rf=2083&lm=49154

Using the Ecliptical Coordinate System on our sun (Sol), allows you to watch the planets orbit the sun:
cel://Follow/Sol/2248-04-04T06:29:20.23125?x=AAC6Jv8tdCLTDA&y=Ckymx//Q46wv&z=VcqYOtpr1ZR4/////////w&ow=-0.101865&ox=-0.199312&oy=0.958080&oz=0.178833&select=Sol&fov=50.975258&ts=1000000.000000<d=0&rf=2083&lm=49154

Lock Earth-Moon showing Moon Phases. Earth is the reference object and Moon is the target object:
cel://PhaseLock/Sol:Earth/Sol:Earth:Moon/2003-07-31T16:43:39.64560?x=AGYiwS5q843HDA&y=EMukpWMxBQ&z=3+9Ff22KsaIM&ow=0.809448&ox=0.049640&oy=-0.569308&oz=0.134975&select=Sol:Earth:Moon&fov=11.232885&ts=100000.000000<d=0&rf=2711&lm=49152

Another example using Earth as the reference object, but Sol as the target:
cel://PhaseLock/Sol:Earth/Sol/2007-08-28T06:59:21.22591?x=AKS7pOkuDy3MDA&y=zLG9Rjcl&z=1drjcBB3a+oG&ow=0.824363&ox=0.118785&oy=-0.520150&oz=0.189101&select=Sol:Earth:Moon&fov=1.595636&ts=1000.000000<d=1&rf=35735&lm=49156

Chase Moon, with Earth in view:
cel://Chase/Sol:Earth:Moon/2003-09-29T02:24:01.65592?x=NmgtqSucTmfNDA&y=Dawu7ij5HA&z=J0zEiSliAYP+/////////w&ow=0.936040&ox=0.018333&oy=0.347256&oz=0.053905&select=Sol:Earth:Moon&fov=25.000031&ts=10000.000000<d=0&rf=2711&lm=49152

Chase Moon with Earth and Sun:

Doesn't anyone have any favorite views in Celestia besides me?

Come on folks, share some of your favorites! :D

Don,

This is an excellent thread idea. One problem is that cel://url capture doesn't work with Windows 98/Me. This means that a lot of users (me included) simply can't create views with this feature :(

Bye

Okay, how about posting bookmarks from the favorites.cel
file? It's just a plain text file.

I know there is some problem with them also, but can't
remember exactly what.

Then other folks can convert them into cel://URLs and
post the URLs.

Other ideas?

Galaxies a plenty.

To view the following, you'll need the listed galaxy add-ons.

Grouping of M16, IC434, M17, Barnard 33, NCG 2023, NGC 2024, M42, M43, NGC 1977, the Milky Way in the foreground.

cel://Follow/IC434/2004-06-05T19:31:44.00278?x=AAAAAEDxa1Co3EIE&y=AAAAAAAiBiqC2624/////w&z=AAAAAAA44IIn7Ekn/////w&ow=-0.019662&ox=0.307392&oy=0.944841&oz=-0.111350&select=IC434&fov=1.867910&ts=0.000000<d=0&rf=57239&lm=0


Grouping of IC434, NGC2024, NGC2023 Barnard 33, M42, M43, NGC1977, NGC2237, NGC 7293, NGC1999 and the Milky again in the foreground.

cel://Follow/NGC2237/2004-06-05T19:31:44.00278?x=AAAAAABQd8hFAOmD/////w&y=AAAAAADwkjLJ/qQs/////w&z=AAAAAACgliQXjCha/f///w&ow=0.051052&ox=0.313220&oy=0.933650&oz=-0.166083&select=NGC2237&fov=1.536735&ts=0.000000<d=0&rf=57239&lm=0


I think I like it grouped this way even better though it drops out NGC1999 it makes IC434 abd NGC2024 which to me looks like a horses head, fit right in to the nook of NGC 2237 with M42, M43, and NGC 1977 right in the middle of the hole of NGC2037.

Hi all,
Here are a few copied locations... Almost every time I use them I get that unwanted, undefined "track" command that shows up upon pasting into celestia, yielding me a starfield devoid of any objects I expected to see (mac problem?)...see my Celestia Bugs post. If these work out, I'll post more, I have many.

Anyway, I hope you can copy/paste them into your (non-mac?) version of celestia and see what I hope you'll see! -Rich

Well, this is my little addition to this post. :wink:

The Earth grazing the Moon, with Clavius crater in the foreground:

cel://Follow/Sol:Earth:Moon/1999-07-17T19:53:35.77957?x=Qbud8Bn58H8fJ+r//////w&y=DiIUhXCrGPBhX0UB&z=Bbu9bFHA7VIWlAUB&ow=-0.684628&ox=-0.024983&oy=-0.727378&oz=-0.039780&select=Sol:Earth:Moon&fov=6.662436&ts=250.000000<d=0&rf=4883&lm=0

It's based on the moon_clem_color_16k.dds texture (thank you, Praesepe, if I don't remember wrong) because in my opinion this texture gives the most realistic view of the Moon. :wink:
By the way, this script is part of the MoonTour.cel file that I'm working just now, and I hope to have it available in a short time. :P
By soon

Thanks Don for the CEL "cleanup". Sorry they were in the wrong format. I thought they'd appear as links when I posted them...
I'll work on posting more.

No problem Rich. When you want something to be a link, it usually needs to be surrounded by [url]your URL[/url]. You can do this simply by selecting (highlighting) the link URL text and then clicking the URL button.

Also, it helps to register on the forums, so you can edit your posts as necessary. Guests are not allowed to edit posts.

Cheers,

Now since this thread is in the scripting forum, I had to create a script out of it: the script will visit all (?) URLs given in this thread one after the other. Press SPACE to go to the next one.
There seem to be a few duplicates, and I am not sure if I got all URLs. The descriptions were lost :? And some of the URLs given here have "<d=" replaced by "<d=", I tried to correct this.
Anyway, here is the script:

http://www.h-schmidt.net/celestia/visit-urls.celx

Harald

P.S: Creating screenshots shouldn't be a problem either, but I don't know if this would make sense without the descriptions and I am too lazy to manually compile the list of URLs.
