Hi there,

Would it be possible to add a scripting option to the time measure tool, so its possible to customize how time is measured.  For example I would like to include years,  and also include a formula to calculate the difference in degrees between 2 or more planets.

Many thanks

Mario

Hi Mario,

You can add a formula to the Time Price Measure tool to calculate the years between two points. Use the formula to count the calendar days abs(D2 – D1) and divide it by 365:

Use the Planetary Labels tool to count the degrees by planet.

Thanks Darren, is it possible to use  a script to show the difference of degrees for a synodic cycle, from one point in time to another?  I can do this with the time measure tool for 1 planet, but not if I have a synodic cycle. Would be great to add this.

Hi Mario, Hi Darren,

the recommendation to calculate with the “Time Price Measure” tool also the difference of the orbital movement between two dates of TWO planets in degrees (synodic cycle) would be really very helpful.

In the current v1.4 the calculation of the difference of the orbital movement between two dates of ONE planet in degrees (sidereal cycle) is already available. Thank you very much for this feature!

I made this recommendation already some time ago. See my posts “Reminder – New Tool “Planetary Measure”” from January 9, 2019 and “New Tool “Planetary Measure”” from March 13, 2018.

I know that in the current version of Optuma the tool “Time by Synodic Degree” is not regular available because of an issue with the calculation of a synodic cycle. But when the issue is resolved it would be a good idea to implement it also in the tool “Time Price Measure”.
