How I set These Up
#30
I really like to plot within SkyTools using an hourly osculating element set produced by Horizons. SkyTools has the reference frame of the full deep sky catalogs and really beautiful stellar charting. On the other hand, do a Google for "astronomy gravitational 3D simulation" I've only used Universe Sandbox on a Virtual Reality system. It was beautiful but I never got it to do the solar system simulations I was looking for. Used AstroGrav as a rock simulator for over 12 years. A movie of some of what it does is at https://vimeo.com/629439423

What it illustrates is that each one minute step creates a new element set to produce the next step. So osculating taking into account the gravitational effects of any perturbers. The generated ephemeris is for the elements from the MPC but the positions for the JPL and Lowell are also plotted on the FOV for 2019 XS. What is lacking in AstroGrav is huge sets of catalogs of all of the deep sky objects. You can import as many or as few comets and minor planets as floats your boat, but no faint fuzzies. The stellar data is from GAIA2, soon to be GAIA3. All it does is gravity simulations. No deep sky catalogs.

Sorry, I did not finish.
Go let Horizons make you an osculating element set. It will have times (I use 1 hour step near time I want to observe).

Highlight (select) all the text. Copy (Ctrl+c in Windows) the full set at the time you want to observe. The full set:

2459049.708333333 = A.D. 2020-Jul-19 05:00:00.0000 TDB
EC= 5.110455240473311E-01 QR= 5.463558241559977E-01 IN= 7.681152919084764E-01
OM= 1.584502008168773E+02 W = 2.489835182502317E+02 Tp= 2459111.211830436718
N = 8.344366050810789E-01 MA= 3.086792306767361E+02 TA= 2.481067701965983E+02
A = 1.117396099282022E+00 AD= 1.688436374408047E+00 PR= 4.314288201259102E+02

Then edit the rock and paste in the new set. Let it finish. It takes some time. Then create in SkyTools, your own personal ephemeris of that date and time near what was in the osculating set.
