Hi, I’m working my way through the tutorials, currently looking at the orbit determination ones. Maybe it’s my lack of Java knowledge but while complete I can’t call it entirely helpful as there are no additional information(Video tutorial, or even tutorial PDF) to go with the code.
For example, to start I see the abstractOrbitDetermination and all it says it’s the base class for the OD tutorial. While I understand this is probably a very cleaver programming arrangement but it really confuses a beginner like me(it took sometime to realize this is not a Orekit thing but something created specifically for the tutorial). Just by looking at it I have questions like should I use this when I need to develop my own OD code or can this be simplified. I wish there is a bare minimal version of this. Like a hello world version.
I would like to still say that I believe Orekit is a very powerful and probably the most flexible Astro tool. But it comes with great complexity for beginners. If you guys believe this is my own lack of Java knowledge then ignore this as I do plan to continue to learn on my own. But if possible I think a better or more complete tutorial would be extremely helpful. I know some of my friends find the lack of tutorial (not just code) makes it difficult to use as well. Thank you for your consideration.
