```You can use the same principle:

sc mpg weight || scatteri 35 3000, ms(Oh) msize(*7)

So, this way the circle entre is exactly placed, but the radius is
controlled indirectly.

If it's really important to control exactly where the circumference
lies, you will have to use -twoway function- instead of -scatteri-.
The trick then is to draw the top and bottom halves of a circle
separately and to take care that they are shown in the same colour.

I'd guess I owe that trick to Vince Wiggins.
