    I added a few extra steps in the spreadsheet so as to address those problematic cases I mentioned earlier.

    This is my thinking exactly, please see the attached spreadsheet.
    There are some highly specialized arrangements with which it can have problems,
    but it should work fine for any "normal" case.

    The preloaded case is rotated 90 degrees from W to S with respect to my original illustration example.
    Thus it has the GP1, GP2, and the ship on the same meridian, with osculating LOPs.
