Many years ago to put together a presentation or article on celestial 
mechanics, spherical trig, trajectory analysis, etc. I would use a 
compass, ruler, and maybe a French curve to draw the figures, coordinate 
axes, etc. on paper. Labels would be typed onto the sheets. I would like 
to think that over the last decade that some modest software package 
might be available to do this. Does anyone know of any?
