These settings are the fourth step in getting Neo Planner up and running.  

Here you define the NO GO Area of Neo Planner.
In preparation for an observation session, so far you manually spend some of the time picking out the observable objects and weighing which objects are really suitable.
With the help of the settings made here, the objects are preselected analogous to the manual entries on the MPC homepage and the ephemeris are determined.
NEO Planner only selects non-numbered NEOs and all observable comets.
When loading or saving Object Selection, the associated current result of the CGI-query at the MPC is displayed due to the preset settings on the right in the window.

Plausibility checks or actions are usually only carried out after leaving the cursor in the input field.
