Flight instructions (read before flight)
Quicksave before launch
A few seconds after launch gently roll the rocket 90°
Until ~5000m, hold directly upwards. Note: do not use the radial SAS mode, as it causes the rocket to shake
At 5000m, begin very slowly pitching over
3 seconds before booster cut-off, light the core engine and hold prograde. at this this point in flight you should be pointing at ~65-70°
Keep slowly pitching over, by the time the core first stage runs out of fuel you should be at ~45°
The core second stage has a twr<1 so be very careful with the gravity turn. Burn until you reach a 100km apoapsis or whatever apoapsis you want
Detach the centaur T in orbit. From here, the transfer to Jool/ Sarnus should be simple. Gravity assists can be used but are not needed.
