These settings are the fourth step in getting Neo Planner
up and running.
Here you define the
NO GO Area of Neo Planner.
In preparation for an observation session, so far you manually
spend some of the time picking out the observable objects and weighing which
objects are really suitable.
With the help of the settings made here, the objects are preselected analogous
to the manual entries on the MPC homepage and the ephemeris are determined.
NEO Planner only selects non-numbered NEOs and all observable comets.
When loading or saving Object Selection, the associated
current result of the
CGI-query at the MPC is displayed
due to the preset settings on the right in the window.
Plausibility checks or actions are usually only carried out after leaving the
cursor in the input field.
