Astrometrica Selector is a small utility designed to make it easier
and quicker to start the Astrometrica application with a specific set of
Program settings when more than one set are in regular use.
For instance, you may be using different program settings for:
- each telescope you use (e.g. using different Observing sites or
- measuring astrometry or photometry (e.g. using different CCD,
Program or Catalog settings)
Using Astrometrica Selector, the choice of configuration to be used
is made before Astrometrica is started, rather than afterwards.
Astrometrica Selector can be used to start Astrometrica in two modes:
Astrometrica Selector can also be used to set the default program
settings file to be used the next time Astrometrica is started, without
needing to start Astrometrica itself. See
Save selected CFG file as
default in the user guide for more information.
- Start Astrometrica Selector, select a Program settings
configuration file from a list then press
Launch Astrometrica using selected settings (see the user
guide for more information) to start Astrometrica.
- Use a Windows shortcut to
Astrometrica Selector to start Astrometrica using settings from a
specific Program settings configuration file, even if that file is
not the one Astrometrica used last. Astrometrica Selector can
automatically create the Windows shortcuts for any of your existing
Program settings configuration files. See
Create Desktop shortcut for file in the user guide for more
