Hey Moriba,

Thanks for the ever growing service from Astriagraph. I wonder a couple of
things though (which you might want to add as a comment to the OEM):
1.  How are they generated? Are they based on SGP4 propagated TLEs?
2. If so, which TLE? supplied by the operator or NORAD? What is the epoch?
3. If propagated numerically, then what is the physical and numerical
model? (Geopotentials, drag etc. and DOP853, RK78 etc)

I am a fan of using the trajectory information rather than the initial
orbit when possible (matching two propagations is always a mess), so this
might be helpful for analyses for those who don't want the hassle of
actually propagating the orbit.

Obviously, Christmas is coming and I want covariance data from Santa Claus.
:)

Here goes my 2 Turkish liras (equal to about 21 Euro cents these days).

Cheers,
egemen
