Re: [guide-user] Guide Question

I doubt that you are going to see any stars to 20th magnitude on Guide; the limit is
imposed by the star catalog that you have defaulted to with the program and I am not
aware of any star catalogs that are commonly used that go down that deep. The sheer
size of such a catalog would be far beyond the capacity of your computer to hold it.
