The Interstellar Comet
#7
I see C/2019 Q4 in the Observable Comets list of one of my test versions of SkyTools 3 Pro. That list is generated directly from the downloadable Observable Comets file, so it would appear that the MPC has it updated through C/2019 Q4 after all. Maybe you should try downloading it again.

Yes, I am aware of the alternative file, but I have not needed to use it. BTW ST4 Imaging doesn't have the ability to download comet data from a file. It's not supposed to need it! SkyTools 3 should be able to read these files, however, but I have not tried it. They seem to have added the latest comets, but as far as I can tell they have no means of updating the epochs of the orbits, which is starting to become an issue. So I do not recommend using it.

For the current comets in both ST3/ST4 I do my own import of data and then export it in the form of the observing lists. So in the vast majority of cases all anyone needs to do is download the current comet lists.
Clear skies,
Greg
