Orbit Bug ( Not in tutorial )

Recommended Posts

I'd love to see a screenshot. Sounds like you're leaving Kerbin backwards in relation to the sun. Try setting up your maneuver node (you're using maneuver nodes, correct? If not, you should. They let you see what a burn will do before doing it) on the other side of the orbit.

To go to Duna, you want to burn just a bit after the sun sets behind you in your orbit. Give or take depending on how high up you're orbiting.

EDIT: Note also that this is only one part of transferring to another planet. There is a lot more to it than just going in the right direction; you also must leave at the right time, so Duna is where you'll be when you're out near it's orbit.
