X(2), X(8), X(369), X(519)
Ga, Gb, Gc : vertices of the antimedial triangle
Ma, Mb, Mc : midpoints of ABC
infinite points of BC, CA, AB
remark : X(369) and X(3232) are the 1st and 2nd trisected perimeter points

Q045 is the locus of point M such that X(8), M, the centroid of the cevian triangle of M are collinear. See the related Q033.
Q045 is an example of curve passing through X(369), the 1st trisected perimeter point. Its equation is remarkably simple.
Q045 is a quartic with four real asymptotes : three are parallel to the sidelines of ABC and the last one is parallel to the line IG.
The tangents at A, B, C, Ga, Gb, Gc, G concur at X(8), the Nagel point. More generally, the polar line (with respect to the quartic) of any point on pK(X2, X7) passes through X(8).
A construction is given in the page Q002.
Other locus properties :
Q045 is the locus of point M such that
• X(8), M, tM/M are collinear where tM/M is the cevian quotient of the isotomic conjugate tM of M and M.
• M, tM, X7/tM are collinear.
