Re: [guide-user] Re: new issue with comet update

Christian Ambros Feb 7, 2017


have you tried executing guide as administrator and took a look if the update fails, too? The it would be a rights problem.

On Linux, with wine, I had to give wine the privilege to download things, normally this is prohibited by the OS, but since no root privileges are gained by this or any other security violation is done, one can store that as a rule.
The only issue I have is, that the iss server is down since 2017-01-13 so no vector information is updated. My ISS_DATA.txt file is pretty outdated and contains only values up to the 63rd day of 2016.
For letting guide track the ISS for video recording it, this file helps a lot correcting some issues with tracking motor speed, because one can calculate in advance where the iss will be the next 10 seconds. This works like an image stabilizer.

 The ^Minor Planet Center (MPC)//x^ and the ^IMCCE//x^

comets since about 1995.  (Data for historical comets is already built
into the Guide DVD.)   You can click on the following to download
some of these files,  getting orbital data for newly-found objects and
improving orbits for already known objects.  About 600 KBytes will be

   Guide can also import other orbital elements if they're provided in
the "eight-line format",  or the "one-line format" used for Daily Orbit
Updates.  You wouldn't normally do this,  but if you have generated an
orbit using Find_Orb,  for example,  you could import the resulting file
of orbital elements using the following command.

I'd note that if you've installed the Guide 9.1 ZIP file from

your 'add_mpc.hee' should look exactly as Denis describes. (And if it
does not, it suggests that the ZIP file wasn't actually unZIPped so as
to overwrite files in your Guide 9 folder, and you should try again.
When you do so, you should get a warning about overwriting some files
in your Guide folder, such as guide9.exe. If you don't get that warning,
the files are being extracted into the wrong place.)
