Hi Ben,

I have no idea of the format required for upload to Sky Safari.

If someone can tell me what format is needed for Sky Safari, I might be able to create the file for you.

Cheers

The Sky Safari FAQ gives some hints, see question 23:

Hi Gents

Thanks for your help.

John - a kind offer. I don't know how easy it would be as the Sky Safari format appears to have unique numbers assigned to each object - I can't tell if these are reserved to the program or are a more widely used astronomical reference. It might just be easiest for me to work with your existing formats for the list.

Regards

Ben

This question is answered in the FAQ above. Just put -1, -1 and SS will fill in the blanks (if it finds the object in any of its catalogues).
