I am using Nassp 7.0  - quickstart - apollo 14 launch - I got out to the moon and into Luanr orbit just fine. When I undocked from the LM/CSM I decided to redock. But I couldn't. Perfect alignment, .01 m/s closing rate. Is it me or is it Nassp.

Thanks.

P.s.  to all of you working on this wonderful project - THANK YOU ! - I love it, keep up the awesome job.

Well I currently have the 6.4 version so as far as checklists go, I'm not sure. Just one thing. Did you use the LM Sep 2 switch in the CSM to undock? If you did, you have to make sure that you have reset the switch before re-docking other-wise it doesn't work.

Did you follow this topic: http://www.ibiblio.org/mscorbit/mscforum/index.php?topic=1152.0 ?

I just tried it, I undocked by unguarding and switching the DOCKING PROBE switch to EXTD/REL. Then I just moved the CSM forward back in the direction of the LM with some forward linear thrusters and it redocked just fine. Do _not_ use the CSM/LM FINAL SEP 1 or 2 switch, both do the final CSM/LM separation and you cannot redock again. You can check this by switching to exterior view and check if you still have a docking probe.
