Ist it possible to get  The Sky 6 Pro to display DSO labels, like NGC numbers, on the charts? I know it is no longer supported and it maybe due to me running it on Windows 10 but just thought I would check. The help system no longer functions on Windows 10.

Owen ...

 

Open "Display Explorer" under "View" ....scroll down to "Core Databases" and open "Non-stellar" ... make sure "NGC" is selected or any other database you want to display .... open "NGC" and select "ID" or any other information you want to display on the charts.
