Possible strategy for pursuing the NEOCP:
After planning has been carried out in the
windows are called, the NEOCP Check window is called up
Then you call up the background check with audio
signal, which detects all changes in the NEOCP every minute and displays them in
the Show Changes
and Log of
Then you wait relaxed for the audio signal, which
indicates an important change according to your Revise list:
Either new observations have been added to an object, an object has been deleted
or a provisional number has been assigned.
In addition, new objects will be announced acoustically at NEOCP.
The relevance check according to the revise list can be
done in the Show Changes
or the Log of changes on
the NEOCP windows.
If desired, you can now carry out the NEOCP check
here, which automatically stops the background check.
The NEOCP Check plans the NEOCP objects anew in a few seconds.
After doing this, you can push the Replanning
Revise button and call up the Background Check
By Replanning Revise, you will be provided with the latest ephemeris of
former and new NEOCP objects on the
The NEOCP Check function enables the planning to be updated quickly, including
the current NEOCP display. It is checked whether there are updates for
individual NEOCP objects,
whether these have been deleted or an M.P.E.C. publication
took place. If new provisional numbers are assigned, these will be determined
A replanning takes place, taking into account the changes in the NEOCP since the
Detected changes are marked dark red in the object information window.
Changes made in Revise through previous NEOCP checks, such as adding new objects
or deleting objects, are retained, including manual changes to the number of
However, manual changes in the order of objects or copied rows are reset. Each
reorganization of the planning results in a sorting according to R.A.
Any number of checks can be carried out at reasonable intervals for each
The display in the Revise is only updated by pressing the Replanning
All changes to the NEOCP since the NEOCP Check was last called up are listed
Objects that have been removed from the NEOCP or which have a provisional number
and a publication in an M.P.E.C. are also marked. A sorting
option is also offered.
The Show changes window is automatically displayed while
the Background Check is activated.
The activation of Background Check enables an automatic tracking of the NEOCP
and thus takes away this tedious manual work.
Every newly reported observation leads to an update of the orbital elements and
thus to a repositioning of the ephemeris.
It is therefore all the more important to be constantly informed about changes
to the NEOCP.
Background Check now takes over this job and provides information via optical
and, in the event of changes in the number of observations, also acoustic
Acoustic signals are only sent in the event of a change in the number of
observations of an object, in the event of deletion or allocation of a
and in the case of new objects on the NEOCP.
The Off button stops background processing.
The Show changes window is displayed automatically and shows changes on the
NEOCP every minute.
The following changes are displayed in green:
- When an object is changed, its designation is marked
- When an object has been removed from the NEOCP
- When an object has been given a provisional number
- When a new object has been inserted
- When the score changes
- When the number of observations changes
- When the brightness Vmag changes
- When the absolute brightness H changes
- When the update date changes
Show changes window displayed every minute.
In order to reduce the display to the planning objects (Revise
window), activate the checkbox.
If the number of observations of an object changes, if objects have been deleted,
new ones inserted or a provisional number has been assigned,
the background check should be stopped and a new NEOCP check called up manually,
which enables the Revise window to be redisplayed.
Thus, with a few buttons, you can revise the planning and display changed
ephemeris or objects.
