Re: [guide-user] Re: Meter USNOA2 The whole catalog in guide9.0 and running.

Hi Bill!

Only a question:

As you said in a past email ( text of past email :

*Next problem is telling Guide where to find the data. For this,
you can hit Alt-J and add a line such as


Or you can edit the file 'guide.dat' and add the line that way*.

End of email )

I followed this procedure, as you said in a previous email, to indicate Guide
9 the path to find the catalog UCAC4, with success!

I wanted to know if I have to use the same command line "Alt J" to indicate
the path to find the USNO A2 catalog that I have ! ( Or alternatively what
should I do to* edit** the file 'guide.dat' and add the line that way*. I
do not know how! ).

In this first case ( Command " ALT J " ), if successively, I insert the command

"A2_PATH = 16.0, C: \ A2"

I am sure that I maintain valid both options to find both UCAC4 and both
USNO A2, *without losing *the display of one of the two catalogs?

And so on, if I want to add other catalogs?

Please, can you give me confirmation?

Thank you!
