Mike,

mine run off a mix of the Bayer Flamesteed, Gliese and Hip catalogs with the updates done by the Europian Space Agency and The International Astronomy whatever they are, in 2004/2005 using the last star finder sat stuff.. I can if you need only a 50 LY version send it to you (I have one around here some where) I can also sort it by certain star types if you require (it's all in a database), though it takes time to pull out you may be able to get the common name (if they had one) by looking at the set i have vs the ones your using as i discribed on the uploads i did my naming as: Common - Bayer - Gliese - Hip so Proxima Centuri shows up as Proxima Centuri - - GL 551 - 70890

The reason for this was that I was having a lot of issues trying to find set stars by common name with the other catalogs it was taking for ever.. The set I use I know is also used from memory by Celista for their programming and was done from scratch using the calc's for converting Right Ascension etc to distance etc etc.. It took 1 pc 4+ hours to convert them hehe..

As I said I don't know if there any help to you but the linkage

is there for the lowest one.

Off the top of my head those should be CD-68 47 and BD+01 2447, I say that because they keep coming up in my maps that I've been working on the past couple of months. I even think both of those are inhabited in my setting. I'm not familiar with CdC so I don't think I can help finding them there.

Dan.

Thanks, Dan.



I’m making some progress with the near stars job but it’s slow work. I can locate and identify the HD (Henry Draper) and HIP (Hipparcos) catalogue references without too much difficulty in Cartes du Ciel but there are some catalogue references which I can’t fathom (e.g. CoD C-68 47 and BD B+01 2447) where I think I have identified the BD catalogue used but can not work out how to enter the references into my search facility on CdC. I suspect CoD may be the Cordoba Observatories catalogue but this is usually abbreviated CD rather than CoD.



If the originator of the Kepner files is out there, perhaps he can contact me to confirm or correct my assumptions.



Cheers,



Mike

It is the latest version. Just remember to save your sector before running the script.



I'll try to remember to send my data files to you, Mike this evening.



Dan.

I donʼt know whether this is the latest or if it works flawlessly but it is there for you to collect.

I am working on a fictional project and I was interested in whatever happened to the "fastbang" system generation script? and where can I download it or something similar.
