    holding middle mouse button down is the default setting to pan the camera without moving the ships direction.
    It's a little awkward to do but does work.

    Settings/ interface settings/ misc. hotkeys.

    Then press the currently blank tab next to "(Moving) change camera perspecive" to abutton your not using or find suitable. Not a gamepad user myself so not sure if that would cause issues with limited input buttons, but something to look into anyways.

    Hope that helps :)

    Thanks not sure myself but I will look at it soon. I have not logged in for a few weeks due to connection issues and patch issues but I think I have it sorted out now.

    I usually just keep holding W and then hold A or D depending on which way I'm planning my camera so I continue forward rather than turning

    You can set that to a different key. I put it on E. Makes it a lot less awkward.

    Strange, when I hold W and A or D my ship turns left or right. So how does i help with moving the camera, without changing the ships direction?

    You have to pan the camera with your mouse to face the direction you want to fire in, while holding W + A or W + D, in order to "circle" whatever you are attempting to hit with your cannons; Assuming that you are using one of improved/new ships.

    I know how to navigate my ship.

    But the question was, how to move the camera without changing the ships direction. And Andaro answered "I just hold W and A or D".
    Now tell me, how is that the answer to to original question?

    You can use with W+D or W+A to counter-steer while panning the camera, Andaro even says this in their post. Anymore passive-aggressive questions?
