The time zone is either the local time zone of the default location or the Universal Time (Greenwich Mean Time). Events are calculated for 0:00 of the underlying date.
The ephemeris can be shown in western or vedic mode. Differences between these two modes are
The graphical representation can be configured for different circle types (similiar to Unranian astrology).
Sunrise and sunset are always calculated for the default location. Even the time zone UT has the corrdinates of the default location.
Sunrise and sunset can be configured in the Ephemeris tab of the configuration dialog.
This view calculates the ingress times of the objects. Western and Vedic show sign changes. Vedic view shows Nakshatra changes, too.
Tithis and lunar events are based upon the position of the Sun and the Moon, resp. the angle from Sun to Moon.
Western astrology pays attention to the classical aspects, e.g. conjunction for New Moon or opposition for Full Moon.
Vedic astrology divides the month (i.e. the time between 2 New Moon events) into 30 equal parts, each of 12 deg.
The first half is the bright part of the month (Sukla Paksha), the second half is the dark half of the month (Krishna Paksha).
Remark: The Tithi of a day is defined to be the Tithi at sunrise. So a birth before sunrise has the Tithi of the day before!
K.P. events are are based upon the position of the Moon in her Nakshatras (Lunar mansions, stellar constellations).
Each Lunar position has a K.P. lord and sublord. These lords change from time to time, e.g. on a Nakshatra change of the Moon. The K.P. event view of Maitreya's ephemeris view calculates these events.
Classical K.P. astrology uses only Vimsottari Dasa. But the program calculates K.P. events for general Nakshatra Dasas, too. This feature is intended for research purposes.
This view shows Lunar and Solar eclipses for a given time span.
