    Hi Sean,

    Glad you had some fun with it. And yes, to say that the zoom is a little insensitive is understating it. I would say its outright dysfunctional. The reason is that by habit I made it so! To reduce perspective effects. But in this case a bit of perspective doesnt do to much harm. I could easily change it. But before updating I would like to know if there are any other suggestions for improvements.

    And, let me make further promotions! http://demonstrations.wolfram.com/CelestialSphereBasics/ is also related to celestial navigation.

    Best regards

    I downloaded the player and used your demo to explain celestial to my girlfriend. Nice job!

    One suggestion, though: the zoom is a little sensitive. If you could tone that down a bit, I'd say it would be just about perfect.
