RE: [guide-user] Unable to find objects

This might be simpler than you think - once you get the little dialog box to
pop up where you type in the designation, just type in 1656 all by itself
(no "A' or "Abell', etc) The dialog box already knows you are going to type
in an Abell number, so that's all it needs.

Hi Larry,

thanks for the information.

I have everything set as you describe and I can find, for example, Abell
1656 by RA and DEC and it is visible as I zoom in, but Guide does not
find it when I enter it in GoTo/Object Name.

I tried A 1656, Abell 1656, Abell1656 with no luck. I get a "NOT A VALID
OBJECT" error.

If I enter A1656 (no spaces) Guide takes me to another part of the sky,
probably a star catalog designation...
