Hi Thomas,

Um. This is very weird. Just to confirm: C/2011 L4 is being
listed as an _asteroid_? Are the designations shown identical?

on "Add MPC Comets/Asteroids", then on "click to download updated
comet data."

I'd also check Help... About Guide and confirm that the version
date really is from 2013 (i.e., that the update was successful).

attempting to mix and match MPC databases. But with any version
from this year, there should be no issue.

Also: in the Asteroid/Comet Options dialog, click on "Edit
Comet/Asteroid Data". It should show only (new asteroid) and (new

You mention that only the comet version appears. In "data shown",
do you have asteroids turned On?
