Is there anyway to import data form programs such as Chview? It saves star
charts in either a .chv or .lst file and as its all basically co-ordinates
in 3 dimensions it shouldn't be too hard should it?
Also is there a way to generate surface maps system by system rather than
all in one go? My poor PC can't take that in one load!


Cheers for your input guys :D
