Save Database Object in User Objects

Introduced with NexStar hand control version 4 (first included with the CPC) and available in all newer versions, Save Database Object is a new option to add items to the User Objects list.  This allows you to create custom tours prior to taking your scope out for an observing session.

Procedure:

  • Press the MENU button and use  the UP/DOWN buttons (6/9 on the number pad)  to scroll to User Objects and press ENTER.
  • Use the UP/DOWN buttons to scroll to Save Db Obj and press ENTER.
  • Use the UP/DOWN buttons to scroll to the first object you wish to store a database object in and press ENTER.
  • Use the UP/DOWN buttons to scroll to the catalog containing the object you would like to save and press ENTER.   Refer to Appendix B in my book, The NexStar User's Guide, if you are unfamiliar with the available catalogs. 
  • Select an object just as you would when performing a GoTo operation and press ENTER.  The object is now stored in the User Object list.
  • Repeat for as many User Objects as you wish.
