Thanks! I guess this is getting somewhere
The new video "Sun Lava" is available at youtube :
I wasn't releasing without the everchanging sun lava, it adds realism and visual enjoyment.
m22587a, about the MSC, please send it to me so maybe I can give it a boost in those few gap weeks. I want to get into binary systems next week. I guess that the orbital data for far-away bodies is not needed. There will be problems and non-sense results, and the data would be mostly estimated. We have enough well known systems to represent. However, it doesn't hurt in any case to have the data.
Once we are finished with the MSC, there will be time to talk about more catalogues, but as I said, I think there are enough systems by now.
Ok about the bolometric magnitude, I'll take it into account depending on my time. I've checked the current numbers and they don't look that bad, but an improvement is an improvement, and this is an easy one.

What I remember now, is that the web version and the ftp version of the database differ on some records, for example HD142 is missing from the ftp version. Don't worry, I'll look into it when you send me your current version. I'll revise completed data, I'll complete remaining data, and I'll send it back to you for revision.
Meanwhile, I guess I could be remaking the nebulae video, and I'll try to update the web with the news
