It would be very useful to also display --besides the Wiki reference-- the links to the original scientific papers (2005) for the above orbital parameters:

http://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1086/427175/pdf
http://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1086/430667/pdf

I remember that essentially the complete set of required orbital parameters may be found in there (A. M. Ghez et al., F. Eisenhauer et al.)

Thanks,
Fridger

Right, that's how I remember this marvelous view from when the original papers appeared in 2005.

yes, mass 4060000 M_Sun = 4.06e6 M_Sun

M0 = 4.06e6 M_Sun #black hole

Yes that's what I recalled, whence we can do a nice .stc file for the system...
When the orbital data became available around 2005, I made an add-on, but forgot where I made it public. For sure not in the Motherlode, hence presumably in the shatters.net forum, since the CelestialMatters forum did not yet exist;-)
