Possible strategy for pursuing the NEOCP:

After planning has been carried out in the Execute Planning and the Revise and Object Information windows are called, the NEOCP Check window is called up there.
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 Changes windows.

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 again.

By Replanning Revise, you will be provided with the latest ephemeris of former and new NEOCP objects on the Revise Window.

NEOCP Check:

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 and displayed.

Replanning Revise:

A replanning takes place, taking into account the changes in the NEOCP since the last plan.

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 groups.
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 completed plan.
The display in the Revise is only updated by pressing the Replanning Revise button, not automatically.

Show changes:

All changes to the NEOCP since the NEOCP Check was last called up are listed here.
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.

Background check:

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 signals.
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 provisional number
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.
