Modernized database of open clusters

Post #1by Croc » 19.09.2016, 14:58

Hello to all!
I begin new topic 'modernized database open star clusters. "
I want to thank everyone who has shown interest in the graphical user interface LUA UNIVERSAL TOOLS.
For me, English is not a native, I never he studied. I write my posts using Google translator. I hope you understand me.

The LUA UNIVERSAL TOOLS integrated mini-encyclopedia consisting of 34 guides (~ 1000 links).

For working database are necessary for different classes of objects.

Let me remind you what has been done:

I hope that everything is installed correctly. It is possible to move on ...

Installation:
  • Rename the folder "Data" in the "Data_old" (The folder can be useful to restore the old configuration).
  • Unpack the archive open_clusters_moderm.zip
  • Copy the unpacked file to the parent folder Celestia
  • Agree to replace.
  • Start Celestia.

Modernization databases "open clusters":
  • Create a database with a two-line name:
    • Level # 1 - the standard string name
    • Level # 2 - alternative string of names with national localization
  • The creation of models of "open clusters"

A source:
  • Base open_clusters.dsc (610 open clusters) by S.Ball on 18.02.2003
  • additional models of open clusters own development.

Author Gennady Lygin modernization, aka Croc.
Date modernization 18.02.2016

(Initial state) line names are blocked signatures # 1_ # 2_.
This file is placed in the catalogs/depot directory.

Code: Select all

#1_OpenCluster "Wild Duck Cluster:M 11:Messier 11:NGC 6705" #1=
#2_OpenCluster "M 11:*Мессье 11:Messier 11:*Дикая Утка:Wild Duck Cluster:NGC 6705" #2=
{  RA      18.8513889
    Dec      -6.2700000
    Distance    6119.0200195
    Radius      11.5700102
    InfoURL "http://obswww.unige.ch/webda/cgi-bin/ocl_page.cgi?cluster=m11"
}

Example a national (in this example - Russian) localization:
  • Activation database using a text editor (not Word) is the change of the signature (or # 1_ # 2_) an empty place.
  • Create a copy of the source code.
  • Change the signature (# 2_)
  • Save without BOM
Result:

Code: Select all

#1_OpenCluster "Wild Duck Cluster:M 11:Messier 11:NGC 6705" #1=
OpenCluster "M 11:*Мессье 11:Messier 11:*Дикая Утка:Wild Duck Cluster:NGC 6705" #2=

Next:
  • Move the database from folder "catalogs / depot" in "catalogs" folder.
  • We give consent for a replacement.
  • Start Celestia.
