Removed all dependency requirements Re-size the entire main structure Part is now considered a 3.75m part and not a 5m part (uses 2.5m decoupler) Re-size side solar panels to fit new structure size Re-create the entire sunshield and animation using bones to drop the Textures Unlimited (blend shapes animation loading) requirement Adjusted the timings of the entire deployment animation to be more equivalent to the real deployment Renamed the deployment animation action to "Open Aperture" to play nicely with Cacteye Model is loaded as a .mu and not an smf Re-texture entire main unit + solar panels Scale-down the RCS thrusters size Scale-down Main + Side antenna sizes Fix location of all attachment points due to structure's change in size Fix engine FX location Various Textures Unlimited (optional) changes: -Sunshield is now a flat texture -The body is all wrinkled and looks like actual foil -Secondary mirror is reflective -Camera/Sensor is reflective -Shiny flat sections on body ("flaps"/solar panel mounts) Added 5 new TSST telescope targets in infrared taken from Spitzer Added Cacteye compatibility (acts as the telescope part)

This has been tested with Textures Unlimited and TSST for version 1.9.x. This was also tested on KSP 1.10.1 and this mod experienced no issues. I cannot guarantee anything beyond that therefore, this is 1.10.LTE and should be official for 1.10.x once T.U. and TSST are updated. -Re-compile all parts on 1.10 part tools

Fixed transform issue where the "Control from here" node for swapping back to vertical view from horizontal was not working Added ModuleSAS, level 3
Released on 2018-03-18
Rebuild and recompile for 1.4 Fixed base structure center point / origin Reassembled and exported model with very slightly altered scale Fixed center thrust point Re-aligned all attachment nodes Added 8x attachment points for the RCS thrusters RCS Thrusters now have an attachment node Fixed rear solar panel center point / origin Reduced SAS power Greatly increased SAS electricity cost to promote maneuver accuracy
