[Feature Request] Use system scroll direction for zooming on macOS

Hi, using SkySafari 6 Pro here on macOS. When natural scrolling is enabled in macOS system preferences SkySafari still uses "unnatural" scrolling for FOV control.

The metaphor with "unnatural" scrolling (which SkySafari currently uses) is that you're manipulating the viewport. So push forward to move the viewport forward.

The metaphor with natural scrolling is that you're manipulating the object. So to zoom in on a star you pull it towards you.

There's not really a right or wrong metaphor, but it would be nice if SkySafari respected the OS setting and behaved accordingly. See the Apple Maps app for an example.
