I was just wondering if there is a way to import an observation list from another program into Prism. I have attempted it but seem to have the wrong file format.

In particular I would like to be able to create a list on https://dso-browser.com/ and import it into Prism. I can save the list as an Excel file as a *.csv and import it into SGP or ATP ( neither of which I actually own) but I can't seem to be able to do it in Prism. I know I can't have everything but it doesn't hurt to ask.

You're correct, it is a matter of having the right format. How big is this list?

Honestly there would only be a probable list of 4 or 5 objects on a given night but I do like the way the website presents the objects and peak viewing times for any object on a given night in addition to weather / viewing data for any given night. Thanks.

I quote:
"I was wondering if there was a way to import a watch list from another program into Prism. I tried, but I seem to have a bad file format."

Create a list at https://dso-browser.com/ and import it into Prism.

Website admin without information is the correct file field structure.
How do I import the csv file?
- help does not contain information (image attached)
- Import menu is a limited data source. (picture attached)

best regards

I corresponded with the dev of DSO-Browser and had a great conversation, I have added this feature request to the list.

Thank you very much!

The great Prism software from the Find around popup menu knows the selection and gives the OBJlist well.
Attach the pictures.
Thank you for your tiredness and wish list!

best regards
