Import find_orb elements.txt (Resolved)

ccaf595 Jul 24, 2015


The file 'elementd.txt' generated by find_orb can not be added via 'Add MPC asteroids/comets' even if 'Alternative element format' is unchecked in find_orb/Settings. The problem, I found, is an extra blank space after the sentence 'Orbital elements:' in the first line; remove the trailing space and Guide9 adds the object. If necessary, you have to edit the H absolute magnitude parameter.

I hope this helps...
