I'm currently using Deep-Sky Planner 18.104.22.168. I'm in the process of creating an observing plan for all of the objects in Walter Scott Houston's Deep-Sky Wonders anthology by Stephen O'meara, using the plans already prepared from the DSP Community Page (which had one for each of the 12 months in the book). One problem I'm having is that I can't get my newly created plan to recognize objects I've already observed that have been entered into my observing log. Is there a way I can connect this plan to my existing observing log? I have a Herschel 400 list I've saved, but this was created by query using the H-400 catalog stored in the DSP database.
I've also noted that the file type for my saved query (for the Herschel 400) is ".dsoqry" (which does recognized objects observed on my observing log), while my newly created Deep-Sky Wonders observing plan is ".dsplan" (which does not recognized objects on my observed log. Is it the difference between these two file types that is the problem?
The reason I want my DSW Observing Plan to recognize objects observed is to avoid duplicate observations that would delay my completion of that list.
I would just e-mail Phyllis Lang, but I she must get swamped with queries.
Thanks for any advice,
