Mach 2 modeling with partial sky view #Mach2GTO

Hi,

How does the modeling work with a partial sky view? For example, with a SkyShed pod, you have the half clamshell cutting off a large portion of sky. How does this work?

If your dome is automated then no problem. 

If it is manual then you have to move the done around.

If you don't want to move the dome then just run the model in the part of the sky you have visible.

I don't think you need to do full sky modeling.  Model on the area you wish to image from the POD, and run with that.  Seems simpler.
