Hum when it comes time to generate a view if this library,
if your library is in 3D points, not ra dec, you'll save thousands of trig
functions, and the time.

seta(1,146180222.862047,-139516389.855953,-37392435.96208,5.1);
seta(2,65647206.128445,-80763375.119065,-16312013.815614,4.7);
seta(3,135031719.98319,-145513040.060053,-31389042.949954,5.3);

times 10,000,000 = miles, and there's your distance.

I already made a bright star catalog converted to pov, in 3D points, if anyone
is interested.
