SensorViewpoint.ViewpointType          = "sensorview";

SensorViewpoint.ViewpointName          = "Sensor View";

SensorViewpoint.SensorView.Source      = Spacecraft1.Sensors[0].ObjectId;

SensorViewpoint.SensorView.Azimuth     = 0;

SensorViewpoint.SensorView.CoElevation = 0;

SensorViewpoint.SensorView.FieldOfView = 60;


// Add Viewpoint to a ViewWindow and activate it
