- Reaction score
I want to know how accurate is the distance of the closest approach shown by this MFD while you are setting a stage or planning a manoeuvre while you are in a stage centred on major body. Futhermore I have seen that after all have been set, and before the burn, this distance is oscillating with regularity when you are accelerating the time and increasing in general. As I stop to accelerate time, the distance has changed, so it isn’t just due to the time acceleration. Perhaps as we are moving, gravity attractions are responsible of that changes but it could also has no physical signification. Therefore how is it precise and what are the reasons of those oscillations ?
