Update 1.117 for COELIX LITE
To be considered complete, this update of COELIX LITE may require the execution of more than one installation program: main update of the software, installation of ASCOM platform, installation of GSView, etc.
In each case, the download dialog box of your browser asks if you want to execute immediately or save the installation programs. Choose "Save" to keep a copy, and then run them from your computer.
Update of the orbital elements of comets and asteroids
You do not need to do separate updates of orbital elements of comets and asteroids. These updates are already included in the main updates of the software.
Make sure to do the updates regularly (at least every three months) so that COELIX can properly display the positions of comets and asteroids on sky maps and calculate the ephemeris of these bodies.
Update of the longitude of the Jupiter's Red Spot
The longitude of Jupiter's Red Spot is now equal to 285° according to data from JUPOS.
You can update this value in COELIX in the menu Preferences and settings / Longitude of the Jupiter's Red Spot.
The longitude of the Red Spot varies randomly with time and must be updated several times a year to ensure that the Red Spot appears at the right place on the globe of Jupiter and that the times of its transits are accurate.
Installation of the GhostScript and GSView programs
The two free programs GhostScript and GSView are necessary to enable COELIX to save the sky maps and the graphic almanac in vectorial PDF format. You will then be able to view and print these maps and almanacs with Acrobat Reader .
See help in COELIX to download and install these programs.
Installation of the ASCOM platform
In order to control a motorized telescope with COELIX, you must download and install the ASCOM platform and the driver of the model of the telescope. These free programs are available on the ASCOM Website.
See help in COELIX to install and use ASCOM.
