"Traveling through hyperspace ain't like dusting crops, boy! Without precise calculations we could fly right through a star or bounce too close to a supernova, and that'd end your trip real quick, wouldn't it?"
Something I've never really understood is how Han can seemingly manually pull out of hyperspace at exactly the right instant. You see him moving the controls back to pull out of hyperspeed.
In The Force Awakens:
Han pulls out of hyperspace seemingly manually at the exact moment to get within a planetary shield, without crashing into the planet. This is an incredibly small margin of error.
Is there even an in-canon explanation for how this is possible?
Hyperspeed in Star Wars is fast and it seems, even for someone such as Han Solo, it'd be impossible to successfully time the exit correctly. I understand that it looks cooler to see Han move a control to exit (than just a computer controlled exit) but it really seems implausible.
