What's new in 6.2.0


• Incorporated Wolfgang Steinicke's 2019 updates to his NGC/IC database.
• Added better support for having multiple observations of an object in an observing list.
• In observing lists, you can now chose to show all objects, only observed objects, or only unobserved objects.
• When attaching an observation to an observing list, we now show two sections of lists. Those lists that already contain the object and those that don't.
• Added a Quasar type to the Planner for searches.
• In Pro, added the ability to toggle the extension databases between Active and Inactive states.
• For equatorial Celestron Wi-Fi mounts, you now are given the option of doing an All-Star Polar Alignment (ASPA) after a star alignment.

What's new in 6.1.0


• Added option to have rectangular custom fields of view.
• In the Observation screen you can now display the info for the object or center the object in the main chart.
• In the Observations screen, we no longer show sessions without any observations.  We also show the number of observations in sessions that do have observations.
• When associating an observing list with an observation, we now show all observing lists rather than just those that contain the object.  If the chosen list doesn't have that object in it, we give you the option to add it.
