Yes, I am going to try that. Now I am
trying to figure out how to download the file from the web.
The only weird thing is that the data
files in the SiTech\SitechExe\Database\ are extension .dat, but
the file with the ephemerids is with extension .txt.
I hope that is correct.

When using the SKYX you also need to push the button Set Track
Rates on the Telescope tab to get the correct tracking rate for
a comet or an asteroid. I'd stick with the SkyView technique -
it works no matter what software you are using.

The easy way in SiTech is to download the comet database into
SkyView and then tell Skyview to go to the comet. The Skyview
dialog will offer to set the tracking rates for the comet (each
comet is different). Alternatively if you use a planetarium
program like TheSky and it is connected to SiTech, then
directing the mount to the comet from TheSky will set the
tracking rates for you.
