Subject: [guide-user] Comet orbital element file from MPC

Ok, so am I doing this correctly?

I go to the MPC page downloading comet files for popular planetarium programs:

Download the file for "Guide (Project Pluto)".  The file is named   "Soft02Cm t.txt"

Rename the file to   "Soft02Cm.txt"

Note that the last "t" is removed from the file name because Guide did not recognize the file with the "t".

Put the newly renamed file in the Guide folder.

....just checking. & #160; Thanks!
