Contributions to this software library are always welcome. Please ensure that you post program listings rather than .raw files. They give a reasonable idea of what your program does without having to load them into a DM42 and you can also include comments in your code. Check out the following link for a decoder/encoder: http://www.swissmicros.com/dm42/decoder/

You can then copy/paste the listing and post it in "code" tags.

Jupiter Moons

Post by Josef » Wed Sep 25, 2019 8:24 pm

I made a graphical program for calculating coordinates of the 4 greatest satellites of Jupiter ( Io , Europe , Ganymede , Callisto ).

Calculate the positions of the 4 Galilean satellites of Jupiter on 10 October 2019 at 0h 50m 10s UT
10.102019 ENTER
0.5010 XEQ "Jupiter"

STOP - stop the program, you can see Y = DATE DD.MMYYYY, Z = HH.MMSS
<REW - animation rearwards
◼ - stop animation
FRW> - animation forward
HOUR+ - one hour forward
HOUR- - one hour rearwards

I use part of the algorithm from Jean-Marc Baillard.
