Hi guys,

I believe I've solved some p[ast bugs here in PDA. To install you need only to unzip files in PDA's Tachyon main folder.

This version fixes comet magnitudes related by Bob and Eclipses issues.

What we have new ?

The first thing is that the wait cursor in skychart is gone...Now the right topmost button in SkyChart,i.e, the closing button, chhange color when skychart is busy. GREEN means that it is ready to accept commands. RED means it is busy.

The precision of sw now is awesome as you can verify it.

First test you can set a new site to Tony's Lybia spot Wink After that goes to Sun dialog in Main Menu. Go to Solar Eclipses. Change the date at top to some date prior than Apr 29,2006. Press search next eclipse. The time presented is not local, but central. Press go to chart. Now a nice view of Sun and Moon will appear. Use the VIEW/TIME options to advance or backward time. Precisely at 10:38 UT you are done !

To check precision of calculations you can test the next eclipse. An anular on Sep 22, 2006. Set a new location to LAT -20 39 48 and LONG to +09 04 36. Go through the same steps. You will be dead on on a anular eclipse !

Now I believe that Tony can leave TheSky 6 in home...at least for eclipse simulation Wink

Lunar eclipses now have same functions.

The problem of use a click in Chart to repositioning correctly is not yet solved.

You can set crumbs using ChPref in animations to see precisely past positions.

If you use FIND it will double IDs as now every time you FIND an object it retains for the session. This is a way to overcome cluttering in Comets and Asteroids.

Other small bugs fixed.

PC version will came later....

You can get PDA's here

Have fun !
