    There's one problem, starry night backyard doesn't use the norad sgp4/sdp4 orbital model. I had
    done checks using it, and notice the positions where off, so I fiqured they weren't using that
    model. I wrote to tech support, and they confirm my thoughts, it doesn't use the norad sgp4/sdp4
    orbital model. I was told it would in the future, I am still waiting. In the mean time I use guide
    8.0 , It gives better positions.
