There seems to be a problem with the parsis calculations of my star drifter. When I set coordinates to 0:0:0, Galactic Cartography states that I am at 23361:-295:2122. Also, when I attempt to go the parsis coordinates of a known star (obtained with the PAR command in GOES) I arrive at a location that's too far away from my intended target for the local target finder. Is there any way to zero out the Cartography? I suppose I could just subtract the difference but that seems rather cumbersome. I'm running NIV+ and haven't checked if parsis coordinates work normally in other versions.

Hello Animus and welcome.

What you are experiencing is the correct behavior of the Stardrifter.
It works this way, so that you can get near your intended target and be able to target it manually.

For instance 23361:-295:2122 is extremely near 0:0:0.
Similarly when you travel to a destination using the Direct Parsis Input, you should keep an eye at the targeting cross. When the SD stops you should clearly see a star at the center of said cross (if the parsis you entered were those of a star, like you correctly did using the PAR module).
That is your target and the (small) distance should confirm you this.

Ah, that makes more sense. Thanks for the help Neuzd.
