    Re: 2102-E Star Finder

    Hi John
    I fixed the Ecliptic Path and Solar Disk such that for both the northern and 
    southern hemispheres, it is correctly aligned with the star background and 
    properly displays the correct LHA Aries.  That subtlety was pretty tricky, 
    but here it is.
    When you rotate either the Star Base or the Blue Template, the displayed LHA 
    Aries value is updated to what appears to be the correct value.
    The star bases are now correct for either hemisphere.  I finally broke out the 
    2102D to see where I went wrong.
    I figured out how to spell that star's name!
    I added the 180 extension line, no arrowhead :-(
    The LHA Aries increases properly in each hemisphere.
    Some things have not made it into this version.  No tick marks, thats just 
    plain drudgery.  The Red Template didn't make it in.  The numerical values on 
    the Blue Templates didn't make it in either.
    Anyway, its starting to leave the toy stage and become what I wanted, the next 
    generation Star Finder, 2102-E
    Best Regards
