Subject: ASU feature Sent: Friday, October 26, 2001 10:40:15 From: Meade Instruments There's a feature in ASU that we didn't put in the help file. If you want to add a bunch of user objects you can do this by importing them from a text file. All you have to do is create a text file with each field delimited by a | (pipe) or a tab and listed in this order: Name | Right Asc. | Declination | Size | Magnitude Here is an example: The first line uses a | as the delimiter; the rest use tabs. Comments past the magnitude are ignored.

When Import is clicked all the user objects should appear in the Library list. If any are missing check the text file on the line for out of range values or missing delimiters.
