Jupiter for the year 2200 AD

While for set altitude = 0 is out of 3min. and the RA, DEC of the date are correct, the horizontal grid AZ is displaced, like was pointed out elsewhere.
After that date the forecasts degenerates increasly. Still here: rise/set times have precession injected, the current version not.

The post above was "cryptic" because topocentric. This is the same screenshot as geocentric. I can see it match! (aside the horiz. grid's issue).

John, the collation work. I made a new ANSI file named "celestia_venus.tf" (it should mean "text fixes"?) with inside the block of the changed values and a blank space at end. Then I've modified the SPICE Venus .SSC in the part of SpiceRotation:
Code:
SpiceRotation
{
   Kernel [ "pck00010.tpc" "naif0010.tls" "celestia_venus.tf" ]
   Frame "IAU_VENUS"
}


any suggestion on which names to give to such .tf files so that could be more rigorous?

Recapitulating, before the madness...

1) Venus VSOP87
Attachment:
VSOP87_venus.jpg
VSOP87_venus.jpg [ 108.42 KiB | Viewed 2381 times ]

2) Venus SPICE default (+ "earth_fixed.tf")
Attachment:
SPICE_default_venus.jpg
SPICE_default_venus.jpg [ 99.54 KiB | Viewed 2381 times ]

Bad grid orientation (W), degrees, and planetary surface.

3) Venus SPICE default (+ "earth_fixed.tf + "celestia_venus.tf")
Attachment:
SPICE_celestia_venus_tf.jpg
SPICE_celestia_venus_tf.jpg [ 102.36 KiB | Viewed 2381 times ]

good degrees and planetary surface, bad grid orientation (W).

There is not way to get the (E) grid. BUT:

4) Uranus VSOP87

5) Uranus SPICE default (+ "earth_fixed.tf")
Attachment:
SPICE_default_uranus.jpg
SPICE_default_uranus.jpg [ 83.84 KiB | Viewed 2381 times ]

good grid (E), bad surface and bad degrees

6) Uranus SPICE default (+ "earth_fixed.tf + "celestia_uranus.tf")
Attachment:
SPICE_celestia_uranus_tf.jpg
SPICE_celestia_uranus_tf.jpg [ 83.47 KiB | Viewed 2381 times ]

they matches in all. Nonetheless the "rotation matrix" of the two "celestia_xxx.tf" is the same! In this case the grid was (E) in VSOP87 and is remained (E) in both SPICE settings, while in Venus was (E) in VSOP87 and then is become (W) in both SPICE settings.

They matches but the Pluto's pole has been inverted (IAU 2009 + erratum) with respect to VSOP87 and therefore should be so:

3) Pluto SPICE default (+ "earth_fixed.tf + "celestia_pluto.tf")

P.S.
The variation in light shader by both SPICE configurations are still a mistery.

The only guess about the different grid's behavior is that Venus is an inner planet and Uranus an outer planet... :rool:

But what a hel... :evil:

just adding the minus sign before the SpiceRotation's Kernel table and all works fine!

Code:
SpiceRotation
       {
         Kernel         -[ "pck00010.tpc" "naif0010.tls" ]
         Frame               "IAU_VENUS"
       }
