Default How to Move ISS in Orbit MOON?

I was a newbie in the Orbiter Forum here and I tried to ask something less I understand. My question is very simple, I think recently when the International Space Station in orbit moon or other planets orbit. and my question is how to make the International Space Station is in orbit of the moon or other planets?

I hope anyone help me thank you.

Activate the scenario editor (ScnEditor) in the modules tab and open it in Orbiter. F4→Functions in upper panel Orbiter 2016 or F4→Custom in Orbiter 2010. Select the spacecraft you want, Press Edit and Orbital elements. Select the reference body, and enter the correct orbital parameters. For the moon, go for a Semi-Major axis of more than 1758000 meters and eccentricity 0. This will get you to a 20 km orbit around the Moon (or higher).

I agree with dgatsoulis. You can also edit the .scn file and change the parameters there. Although the above solution is much easier. Now if you mean using a spacecraft e.g shuttle or deltaglider to boost the ISS into a lunar orbit that is a bit more complicated indeed.

Attached is a simple ISS in Moon orbit scenario.
I took the Blue Danube scenario of Orbiters distribution, replaced the Wheel station with the ISS and set the rotation to zero.
