truly, truly nuts.
It was hard to read the first few sentences, but then later on i really got a good laugh.
He is comparing the Stellarium images of Saturn to real images from a telescope and wonders why Saturn is not in the right angle, Rings not aligned
right as compared to Stellarium etc...so he says that Saturn flipped .)
Does he not fricking know that an astronomical telescope USUALLY shows everything up side-down+ side reversed? Due to lack of additional correcting
optics which an astronomical scope does not need. Every additional lens means degraded picture quality.
There is no "left/right" or "up/down" in the night sky..so its not important to side-correct optics.
(If you have a astronomical scope and want to use it for earth observations etc...you use an extra lens piece called a barlow lens....)
This is why Stellarium shows it "right" and Saturn looks "tilted" in his comparison images.
A 7 year old with basic astronomy knowledge can point this out...
Stupidity without borders...
