Import observations from another tool
#1
I would like to import my observed objects from Deepsky Astronomy Software (DAS) into SkyTools 3. I have maybe 20,000 observations logged in DAS. Is there a process I can apply to get all my observations transferred?

Hello,

There is a stand-alone app that can be used to import logs here:
https://www.skyhound.com/logimport.html

Importing that many logs will be somewhat involved, but possible. Be sure to read the Help for instructions.

Thank you. 

I've been told you have left Okie-Tex. Is that true?

Yes, Mike. I had to leave on Monday in order to get back to work on SkyTools 4 Visual. :-) Had a great time while I was there! I think I just may be attending every year, and if I can figure a way to get my 18-inch Dob there, I'll stay longer too.

Glad you made it home safe and sound. I leave for Okie_Tex at noon today. We will have to meet another time.

I thought I logged more observations into my DAS program than 7900. So that is a better number than 20,000. Once I get back from Okie-Tex, I'll read the import help and try to get my observations into ST. I exported my observations to a comma separated text file and an XML formatted file. I can write a program to take either data set and put it into the format that ST recognizes, based on the Help text.

When I get all my observations into ST, I can migrate away from DAS.

I do give many presentations to astronomy groups. In the past year, my presentations have introduced SkyTools to the audience. I have a couple of slides that talk about how I use ST now at my telescope.

I have a question about how you imaged the asteroid 2015 TB145 in 2015. Can we take this discussion offline? mhotka@yahoo.com.
