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 TiNspire. If you have a TiNspire, I will upload it in 2 weeks on TiPlanet. Have fun! Marcel

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 Salvo!
In fact I will be ready for the next evolution of the TiNspire (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 TiNspire 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 TiNspire 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. Marcel

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