I tried to apply the coordinates of your Atlas at
50.5 10.0 "CENTER" align=right color=red #
46.0 10.0 "South" align=above color=red #
55.0 10.0 "North" align=below color=red #

to my xplanet markers file
It's a little bit strange that Vienna is outside your points of interest
(I suspect a language barrier between Switzerland and Austria ;-)), but
by moving the center of the image using the xplanet call
xplanet -date "24 Jul 2003 12:00:00" -radius 630 -latitude 50.5 \
-longitude 11.5 -marker_file xplanet-markers.txt \
to the left I hope that Austria is completely inside the image. BTW,
the radius option from xplanet is something different than the distance
in kilometer because I get a smaller section of the map if I increase
the radius value.
I hope these coordinates are fine.
