I'm used to Celestia, but I'm a newbie for scripting.
I'd like to use Celestia to teach position astronomy. I want to make lots of comparisons between what is seen from the ground, and what is seen from space, specially in time lapse.
My greatest problem with scripting is that I couldn't find a way to track an object in the sky like an azimuthal mount would do, -- keeping the horizon at the bottom of the image -- you know, like a human being would do from Earth. Celestia seems to keep an absolute orientation, so Earth's horizon keeps dancing around the image while the image doesn't rotate at all -- and that defeats the purpose of showing what someone would actually see.
Is there a simple way to do it that I'm missing? Has anybody done this before?
If this doesn't exist, could it be done with the available languages? Math is not a problem for me.
