Hi, all.
I don't know whether it is alright to share my translation/writing here. After 1.7 years hard work, I finally finished my handbook on Celestia, which referenced a lot tutorials and documents.
It is not only a book on basic use, i.e. a User's Guide, but also a variety of add-on development skills is introduced.
The site of this handbook:

And special thanks to:
Celestia Dev. Team, especially Chris Laurel
@楚留香宋甜儿
Fridger Schrempp
John Van Vliet
@shany08
Ulrich Adirondack
@闲评秋月春风
@o0小甜甜姐姐0o

I've just filled in the upload form at Celestia MotherLode. I don't know if Ulrich Adirondack and John Van Vliet have already know...

Thank you, Dr Schrempp. I did try my best to make it "look good". In fact, in my last 1.7 year, I've really learnt a lot, about Celestia, about astronomy, and about 3D visualization...
I have a great interest in art design stuff... And I used to be an art editor of our school newspaper. ;)
But I've just tried more than looking good. I've ever read some not-very-formal Celestia guide in Chinese, and I should say some of these authors cannot really tell what is oblateness and what is eccentricity... At first, I aimed to write to guide newbies, but later on, I find I should do more. I tried my best to make the translation accurate. So I started my hard journey on searching the web to find the right things.
Now it is done. I can enjoy my senior year and prepare for my college entrance.

Thanks, sir. That will be very nice of you...
I am a little bit iffy on the issue that if docx will be displayed in a right way on office suites for Linux... I just find that all my docx-s and ppt-x do not look good on programs for Linux.
