This snapshot shows a comet loading process with progress bars
Plausibility checks or actions are usually only carried out after leaving the cursor in the input field.
It is possible here to load the current NEOCP objects for information. This is not necessary for the actual planning, as the NEOCP data is always reloaded there.
It is possible here to load the current
NEAm00.txt for information or for use in astronomy
programs such as TheSky X.
Loading the current comets, which
were last published by the MPC with MPEC XXX: OBSERVATIONS AND ORBITS OF COMETS
AND A / OBJECTS.
In addition, all recently
observed comets are loaded from the Spanish comet observer site
and supplemented with the MPC list.
Attention: Due to the waiting time
of weeks before the publication of new observations, there may be shifts to the
current real Vmag.
The last observation date of the observable comets is loaded and the Vmag of the last 10 observations is averaged to determine the current real Vmag.
You can now enter the Vmag limit size up to which comets should be loaded.
catalogs are required for the Execute Search. Before loading, the desired target
folder must be entered in the folder structure settings.
A faster charging method can also be selected. A starcat.zip file is loaded, which is copied into the starcat folder. There you have to unzip the zip file into the same folder.
