    Skymap 12 comets U.R.L

    I suspect this is because the MPC has moved to https and SkyMap Pro would need to be updated to handle that.. Most astro progarms that automatically updated comet information form the web had to update to handle this. Those that are no longer supporte3d will fail now. Owen

    Starry Night 7

    I have a Surface Pro 3 with Windows 10 1803 and I have no issues running Starry Night Pro 7 ProPlus. I am not sure what the driver issue is on yours. I don't remember having to install the .NET 3.5 drivers but it was a long time ago and it may have upgraded from Windows 7. I must admit that I have no interest in connecting it to a telescope so maybe I don't have the issues others do. As for is it worth it I don't know. I orginally used it because of the all sky CCD image but it is not my first choice software. Owen

    BAA Deep Sky Section meeting 2018

    I know Callum has not posted here but this meeting has been called off due to the weather and will now take place at the same venue on the 22nd April. Owen
  8. OSI is also owned by Farpoint who seem to be collecting lots of smaller US companies (lumicon, JMI, OSI etc.). In many cases these were smaller outfits that have either struggled or their owners are retiring. However it seems that there have been issues that may or may not have been resolved with the quality of Lumicon filters since Farpoint took them over. Owen

  12. Hm the light polltuion maps for this area are pretty scary. Doubt there can be much in the way of truly dark skies here. Owen

    Peter I have to say DeepSky software is one of the more difficult planners to use. To get a star chart you need to have an object in the spreadsheet to click on. If you have not already done this I woudl suggest loading one of the pre canned plans through Planner - open exisitng plan. If you select one of those and say load it into spreadsheet 1 or 2 (assuming those are blank) you will have something to play with. I assume that you know this software is depreacted and no longer supported as of last year?. Owen
