Star Atlas missing

Post by HughP » 14 Oct 2021, 10:53

I have been using a licensed copy of AA7 for a couple of years and am now looking at AA8 (demo).
But I can not get the Star Atlas to work as there is no catalogue.
It was never there in AA7 either.
But as my knowledge increase it would now be really good to have the Star Atlas.
Where can I download, I belive, the GSC catalogue?
Thank you.

The Star Atlas is disabled in the AA8 Demo.

When you downloaded AA7 you were probably given a link to download the GSC.

Thanks Dunmunro, I knew it was disabled in AA8 demo.
I have now got the Star Atlas working in AA7. I checked my downloaded install files but there was no sign of the catalogue for AA7.
After a lot of searching on the internet I found many references to the GSC but the only place I found to download it was from the Carte du Ceil site.
Once downloaded I set AA7 to point to the location in the Prefences and all was well.
I guess I will have to buy a liecense now and upgrade to AA8.
Thanks.

Great!

The AA7 link to the GSC should have been in the email you received after purchase. For AA7 I used the GSC and the USNO A2 star catalog, for AA8 I used the GAIA and USNOA2.
