This note derives the general and fully relativistic equation of the planar orbit as eq. (48). This has a very simple structure, the orbit depends only on v, omega and r, where v is the orbital linear velocity, omega the angular velocity and r the radial coordinate. Therefore the light deflection can be expressed as a function of v and omega for the general orbit.
