WinJUPOS 12.2.4 released on 2023 January 28
Please note: WinJUPOS 10.2.0 and later use another definition of System 3 which was already implemented in
the DOS predecessor PC-JUPOS. Master data (MEA and CMT), Selections (WSE) and Positional averages (PAV) are
unaffected by this change. However, you have to re-generate, e.g., Drift charts in order to re-calculate System 3!

Please note: Longitudes of Jupiter's Central Meridian calculated by WinJUPOS and its predecessor
PC-JUPOS always refer to the illuminated disk (i.e., they are phase-corrected), not the full
planet's ellipse as done by most other ephemerides. The difference between both types of Central
Meridians can reach 0.6° maximum. This divergence affects longitudes of Central Meridians
only, and has no impact on object longitudes measured on images.
