Nice illustration.

To improve it I suggest that you remove the decimals. This will give you some
more space and make it easier to read.

I also suggest that you insert a note to the reader that POV-Ray's trigonometric
functions use radians, not degrees as in you basis vector lists.

Further; some of the equal signs have become minus signs. Could this be caused
by some scaling of the image ?
