As a test I have attached the Permian observing list consisting of the brighter galaxies with look back times to approximately the Permian period of earth history. 

To read this file into ST4: 

1. Save the attachment to your computer

2. Start SkyTools 4 and select the Target Selection tool

3. Press "Get Target Lists" and select "Read from SkyTools .stx file"

4. Browse to the folder where you saved Permian.stx and select the file

5. Click Import

Open the list in the Target Selection tool by selecting the Permian list
When I select Target Selection Tool, I don't have a 'Get Target Lists' option. Running 4.0c  Suggestions?


Look for it just above the observing list columns. There will be a series of controls and menu buttons, starting with "List Functions" on the left. It is the fourth one over. If for some reason it really isn't there please upload aa screen capture so that I can better understand what is going on.

I see it now. So sorry for the confusion on my part. I'm working with ST4 Imaging now to get ready for my dark sky sight. Great software!
