HNSKY 4.0.0

To all HNSKY users,

HNSKY is now at version 4.0.0 RC2 (release candidate 2). If in the coming days no more problems are found, I while launch it as the final v4.0.0.

I think this version is better then 3.4.0 so that version has already moved to "old versions"

Clear skies, Han

Re: Location Icon Doesn't Work

Hello Jason, Thanks for the feedback. I just fixed it in Windows version 4.0.0 RC2. I had to reconstruct the main menu due to a problem and forgot to fix all links in the related tool buttons. It was a good exercise since I also found an other bug and added some missing icons in the mainmenu. So if ...

Re: small bug

Version 4.0.0 has some unexpected problems. Swiping has some side effect, I'm ironing out.

I released 4.0.0ß8a about 30 minutes ago. I see up-arrow doesn't work below the menu. I will fix it.

Re: Implement the PPMXL catalog

After HNSKY 4.0.0 is stable in a few weeks I will have a look. The Gaia catalog will have one billion ( 1000 million) stars and will be the first deep going catalog not extracted from the DSS (like USNO 1B) so completely clean of false detection's. Hunting trans-neptunian objects must be a challengi...

Re: Asteroid Data URL

The minor planet center updates the asteroids only a few times a year. The 2018 update will come. You could update the 2017 database using the numerical integration routine in the program. Just select all asteroid and select numerical integration and save the result. It will be highly accurate. No n...

Re: HNSKY version 4.0.0ß

That where some severe bugs in the previous versions. If you are using version 4.0.0ß, I would suggest to install version 4.0.0ß8 released today.

Clear skies,

Re: Implement the PPMXL catalog

That is possible. I don't want to add too many catalogs. Gaia second edition will probably replace all those catalogs very soon. It the PPMXL much better then Nomad? Nomad has at least the brighter stars from Tycho. If PPMXL is better, I like to drop the Nomad but we could also wait for Gaia. Do you...
