I believe the addition of Symbol Legends right on the rotating graphic itself, indicating which detectors are being used and which targets are being scanned, would be a major improvement.

In addition, "rays" could be used to further define detector locations and targets. Also, why not have a rotating earth in the center of the thing as "ground?"

Over all, the graphic is interesting but almost meaningless for lack of reference points on the earth.

Heck, put the detector name and location on the symbol itself.

Best regards.

I moved this to the whishlist forum.

As to the screensaver, I wonder whether it would be possible to add a visual representation of the results computed.

Like dots in the star-sphere representing the (say) top 100 candidates found.

*Real cool* would be a graphical 3D representation of Hough tranformation result like the ones in the S3 report, but overlayed over the 3D Starshere..would resemble the CPDN screensaver, somehow, I guess, where the color of the shere's surface would indicate "Gravitational wave level averaged over the parameter space for the sky coordinates" instead of temperature :-). Not sure if this would be feasible or makes sense at all.
