Re: [guide-user] USNO A2.0

My apologies...It appears I was copying USNO UCAC3 rather than A2. I have 11 A2 disks which I am copying as we speak.

Thanks for the help,

Tom, "SA2_PATH=19;C:\Program Files\Guide8\Sa20" works for me, showing stars
down to 20.1 mag.
It doesn't matter where I store Sa20 on C: Drive, inside or outside Guide8's

Did you update 'Display > Star Display > Limiting Magnitude' field to at
least 15th mag limit?
Make sure your A2 data Directory Filename is correctly specified in
Guide.dat, including caps for Drive.
A2_PATH=15.0;D:\A2 ,,,or

Continued problems may mean A20 data needs to reside on C: Drive. HTH...joe
