    Unfortunately not. It only works with the Sky 2000 atlas that goes to +8. It was 
    not designed with very small FOV in mind (but instead, for the typical analogue 
    SLR with 50 mm lens image, as used in meteor photography).
    
    I've tried to interest the author of the program to update it with the option to 
      use other catalogues, but to no avail.
