Hello, this is my first time posting dev stuff, but here goes...

In an attempt on my Apollo 7 flight to try and do the rendezvous procedures, I came across a booklet outlining said procedures. Official NASA. Here's the link.

Hope this helps any. Tongue

Also, can any AGC wizards tell me how P34 and P35 are coming along?

AFAIK we still face the problem that we can't calculate the corrective combination and coelliptic burns (SPS Burns 1 & 2) properly by now. But P20 works quite reasonable (tried it myself not long ago -amazing these auto optics!), so why shouldn't P34 and P35?

I was able to use P34 by editing the CSM orbit to put it in the right spot after the 2 SPS burns and then updating the AGC and using P34 and P20. I attempted P35 a few times but had troble getting it to do anything. But I succesfully rendezoued with the SIVb without the midcourse corrections.

Browsed through the docs: have you set EMEM 2021 to 0 and EMEM 2022 to 21450? This sets the ATIGINC (the time from the final pass of P35 to TPM (P41)) to 90 sec. I guess the CMC will get confused otherwise.
Could you post your scenario? I'd really like to meet the 'big thing' myself... Wink
