Re: 3D plots and using mouse click-drag to rotate - why the extra

The default setting of SphericalRegion->False scales three-dimensional
images to be as large as possible, given the display area specified. This
scaling occurs as soon as you let the mouse button go after the click-drag,
causing the extra translation you are experiencing. Setting
SphericalRegion->True or the ViewAngle option to some value or
option-clicking to zoom in or out makes the zoom value of the view fixed and
no longer subject to the automatic scaling stated above.
