Not an asteroid!
stripe1966 Jul 13, 2012
OK, this is the first time playing with asteroids since I got Guide 9.
I downloaded todays MPCORB.DAT file and placed it in both the Guide9 folder and the Guide9/asteroid folder. Which one should it be in? I put a copy in both just to cover my bases.
To be safe, I zomed in to 15 arc-minute FOV and in "Data Shown" turned Asteroids ON.
In the Extras dropdown menu, in the Asteroid/Comet options, I checked the "Use MPCORB" checkbox.
I tried finding asteroid 2000 AT4, and then I tried asteroid 75571 (same rock).
Both come up with the dialogue box "Not an asteroid!"
What am I doing wrong?
