I have been entering some of my old observations, and I would like to enter some with old comets such as Bennett, Halley, Kohoutek, Shoemaker-Levy, etc. How do I enter these comets into the database?

Hi,

These comets are already in the SkyTools 3 historical comet database. All you need to do is enter a designation, such as Kohoutek, into the Designation Search.

Fortunately I happened across your message by chance... but normally this kind of question might better be posted to the SkyTools yahoogroup. I also welcome such questions at my contact or support emails at my web site.

Clear skies,
Greg
