The star map Viewpoint type enables users to set up an output window to display the desired objects against a star chart backdrop. This type of Viewpoint allows you to set a specific Spacecraft as the reference object for the star chart, specify the center point of the chart in right ascension and declination, and set up the map width and height in degrees. The following is a list of the configurable options for a star map Viewpoint.
