Additional Catalogs for Import to User Supplied Objects

These catalogs of objects are in CSV format.  This allows you to import them into NSOL's User Supplied Objects in order to expand the database.

Download and unzip into the data folder for NSOL - generally C:\Program Files\NSObserverList\Data or the location you specified in Setup on the Tools menu.  Then follow the instructions in the manual to import to the User Supplied Objects.
