Inter-planetary travel - possible bug?
« on: September 03, 2015, 01:51:12 PM »
I seem to have a problem in that when I use the orbital planner for a trip from Earth to Mars, I use the Earth view to increase the Delta V, but the Delta T only appears when the trajectory is well past the Mars orbit. Trying to use the Delta T is to set the burn time is virtually impossible. Is this a bug or am doing something wrong?

I'm not sure how to reduce the size of the image! See below - Delta T only appears after Delta V has been increased slightly beyond shown position:

i have the same problem , but seems ok when the earth orbit is  on the same plane that the mars or jupiter plane,then delta t is adjustable. possible to adjust on jupiter but not mars , because its trembling,   when adjusting on pluto, the software is blocked if the excentricity is high out of the solar system.
