    Hi folks:
    
    
      In Rob's Skymap pro: Which map projection is 'closer' to the real view?
    Rectangular or Steoroegrahy. 
    
      I was trying to ID a flasher last night and found that changing the map
    proj view had a big effect between matching the trajectory versus
    background stars ( distance from it). 
    [This sat is suppose to be half the distance between two recognised stars
    but only one projection show it properly w.r.t stars.]
    
    
      Thanks
       rgds
