Deep-Sky Planner 6 & Cartes du Ciel 3.8
      #6136910 - 10/14/13 12:54 PM

When I right-click on an object and select "Show Chart", Deep-Sky Planner launches two Cartes du Ciel Charts. The first chart is the last chart I saved within Cartes du Ciel. The second chart shows the selected object. I have three computers and all of them exhibit the same behavior. Is anybody else experiencing this behavior?

The only time I've seen this is when I haven't had CdC up and running before starting DSP. That is important.

It seems to work either way with Starry Night. (When are they ever going to update Uncle Rod?).

I don't know that they will ever update SN again. I hope I am wrong, but the new owners don't seem overly interested in continuing to develop their program. Shame. SN Pro was real close to being at the top.

When I right-click an object and select "Show Chart" within DSP6 (assuming CDC is already Launched), the object is centered in CDC but at the current time. DSP6 advertises "smart integration". In other words, CDC should center and display the object based on the observing time within DSP6. What am I missing as it always centers the object at current time?

This one, you need to ask Phyllis about (on the DSP Yahoogroup). To be honest with you I don't know the answer since for the small area charts I generate with CdC time doesn't mean pea turkey.
