RE: Re: [guide-user] comet Lovejoy

Lawrence, I just had the same problem in reverse last week – my home pc showed it but my observatory laptop did not.  Problem was that I had two different updates of Guide running.  V9 on both machines, but one had the February 2013 update, and the other said Aug 2011! I updated both to the current (June 2013) update and both work fine now

OK - the mystery is more or less solved (if not deepened)!  I just checked my observatory computer and comet Lovejoy is there without problems. Its on my  'indoors' laptop that it refuses to show.  FWIW I use the 'update comets' facility routinely and I checked the actual file: it shows Lovejoy - but the comet refuses to show on this laptop. However, its not a problem now that's its OK on the observatory laptop.


Thanks to all for guidance (pun!).

Hi Folks,


download latest elements

Hit control K

find Lovejoy 2013 R1

then change absolute mag H to 7.5

and slope parameter g to 5

this is more representative of 2013 R1’s performance.
