Dasha browser linked to transits

Animated transits now update when a dasha period is selected in the dasha browser, making it easy to see transits at the time of dasha period changes. For example, if you want to see where transits were located at the beginning of someone’s Saturn-Mercury dasha, click the Saturn dasha in the dasha browser, and then the MErcury antardasha. All animated transit charts and tables will now show the positions for that Saturn-Mercury period.
