- Added a private member called HelEcPos which stores the Helicentric ecliptic coordinates
of the planets.
- Added six methods to retrieve and set the heliocentric ecliptic coordinates of the planets:
helEcLong() and helEcLat() return the Heliocentric ecliptic longitude and latitude
respectively referred to the mean equinox of the date. setHelEcLong() and setHelEcLat()
set the Heliocentric ecliptic longitude and latitude respectively and are overloaded to
accept a double or a dms.
The heliocentric ecliptic coordinates are set in KSPlanet class when calling the
