Import Comma Delimited List to Create Observing List
Is there a way to convert a comma delimited text list (or spreadsheet or other non-stx file) into an .stx file for import to SkyTools 4 Visual? I have a list of 114 objects in a spreadsheet that I would like to use to create an observing program list and I am a bit daunted by the prospect of entering objects one at a time.

Hello Craig,

You can read your comma-delimited list directly into SkyTools (no need to make an stx file). To do that:

1. Click on Get Observing Lists (Nightly Planner)
2. Select Read from Text File

Further instructions are on the dialog, and the Help button there.
Clear skies,
