Re: [guide-user] 2012 LZ1 mag errros

The MPCORB.dat file does not include this asteroid in any full version AFAIKS.

I only want to find the occasional Asteroid so find downloading the daily.dat file
more than I need.
I just go to

Find the asteroid you want, and open the (Edit Comet/asteroid Data) in the *Extras*
menu and cut and paste the orbital elements into a(new asteroid) window.

> Goto asteroid works ok but does not display the asteroid which is currently 13.9 mag. I have asteroid mag. limit set to display 15.5 mag. Only when I increase the mag limit to 16.6 or dimmer will the NEO display. Never seen this problem show up before. Have been using Guide since Version 2.
