Bright Asteroids in Guide 8

brazosastro Jun 25, 2014

There was some discussion of this a while back but the recommendations did not seem to work.  When I hit the "Quick Info" on the help key, I am seeing numerous non-numbered (i.e., those with preliminary names) asteroids that are very bright (e.g., 2010 CD214 is 1.5 mag!).  I tried deleting the ASTNAMES.DAT and reloading the asteroid/comet data but it did not seem to help.  

Is this an old problem that has been solved or is something wrong with my installation of Guide 8?
