Re: [guide-user] USNO A2.0

tom Jun 1, 2012


I loaded the A2 files (with the exception of some .TAR files on some of the disks). The A2 folder now consists of a bunch of and ZONExxxx.acc files totaling approx. 5.88 GB. I have tried loading this folder on both the C and D drives. Changed the GUIDE.DAT A2_path statement as specified in the manual trying both lower case and capitals. Don't think Windows cares abou case like Linux does, but it did not make a difference.

Looks like I should just download the segment I need from Vizier via the Extra menu, which works fine...

Hi Tom,

Looks to me as if you're doing the right things here. Just to check: do you have
files such as d:\a2\, d:\a2\, etc.?

I ask in part because I've not seen a two-sided USNO DVD for A2.0. There _is_ such
a thing for UCAC-3, and I'm wondering if that's what you have. (There are also a few
DVDs with A2.0 wandering out there. I made a few, then sent them out to people on
condition that they be willing to copy them, then mail them to the next person who
wanted them. That got the data out to quite a few people. But those were on two single
sided DVDs, not one double-sided DVD.)
