Starting Astro Lab 4
I have installed Astro Lab 4 on my HP Prime.
How do I start the application?

When I press start I get the input of the symbolic screen (input function)?
Do I need to change some settings?

Thanks for any Help

Jan

Hi Powersoft,

Astro Lab is not a single program, it is a collection of functions. It is important to be in HOME and not in CAS to use it. I have made a simple guide to help with a step by step procedures, so read it, this is the best help.

I have almost finish AstroLab_5 but this time on Ti-Nspire. If you have a Ti-Nspire, I will upload it in 2 weeks on Ti-Planet.

Have fun!

Marcel

Thanks for the response. Have some trouble with the installation.
I have read your guide, it say's only "copy the files in your HP Prime".
In the download there are 6 subdirectories ended with .hpappdir.
Should I copy them into the Apps Library?
Please can you give me a quick guide to it?

hi Marcel,
thank you.
Do you think also to release it for Prime in a next future?

Hi Salvo!

In fact I will be ready for the next evolution of the Ti-Nspire (maybe in a six months for the next year?). I call it AstroLab_5 because the calculator is not the same but the functions are the same. I change the input (less {}), and I have ad some option for the control of the summer time for the output in seasons (equinoxe and solstice on Prime) and phases_moon. This time the user must input this: seasons({2017,9,19.3},1) where the second argument is 0 or 1 and control the output (regardless the choice at initialisation). A zero will output time in UT and Normal Time and a 1 will output in UT and Local Time (with summer time!).

The Ti-Nspire have no clock so the ListNow function is not the same. The user have to input the time but in the future, it will be the same. I will wait the next Ti-Nspire for the graphical output (Solar system, Jupiter satellites and Moon illumination). The functions are here but the output is only numbers.

AstroLab_5.5 will be the complete application, for now, AstroLab_5 is only the kernel.

Hi Powersoft,
You have drag all the .hpappdir files to the Prime one after one and the installation will be ok.
