GCVS stars for Maxim DL v5

Compiled by Mati Morel

For users of MaximDL/CCD V5 this file replaces the Stars.csv file found in the /Program files/Diffraction Limited/MaximDL V5 folder on Windows machines.

Rename your original file to stars.old and just copy the new file into the folder. The original file contained just 78 bright stars, but the replacement contains those bright stars plus the entire GCVS catalog plus 140 transiting exoplanets. Using the catalog for a GOTO has the added benefit of putting the target star’s name into the FITS header of your images.
