Well, of course the FindOrb is not actually part of the GUIDE sky program.
Bill updates FindOrb and many other ancillary programs independent of GUIDE.

Bill Gray has done yeoman's duty providing one of the most user-friendly and
adaptable sky programs ever produced and has always been proactive and immediately
responsive when things need to be changed or updated. The USER can update the
program with the latest objects, comets asteroids, satellites, and custom cherry pick
literally hundreds if not thousands of combinations suited specifically for the
end-user.

There is not a better sky program out there....I do not need to see cute little
images of houses, trees and howling wolves on the horizons to use a program to
control my telescope to the maximum of its abilities. Trust me: when the sky
changes or our requirements demand change, Bill will alert GUIDE. He has always
welcomed suggestions and reacted to those effectively and efficiently.
