Re: TYC5061-513-1 occultation by Asteroid 38628 Huya

Hi Alnitak, I was unable to see this far object because last year I used a 8" reflector, ridiculously small for that kind of TNO object. (38628) Huya is around 400-500 km diameter and has a apparent magnitude around 19. To see it, we must have larger scopes, exposures longer than 0.2 sec and very go...

Re: Suggest features for V11

Hello Hamza, For the next Prism version, is it possible to have this functions? - in the skychart when searching for an object, Prism can find automatically a certain star only from HD, SAO, HIP and other catalogs but not for GSC, UCAC4 and TYC catalogs. Now, for these stars I make a manual search i...

I find the present autostretch function a little bit cumbersome when I open images with different signal levels. SGP an...
