I was using my Linux laptop running Kstars 3.5.9 (Build: 2022-06-13T06:24:55Z) pointed at star HD 198268 as it provided the framing I wanted. The laptop up and died so I switched to my MacBook Pro running Kstars 3.5.9 Stable (Build: 2022-05-25T20:48:13Z) and when searching for the same star discovered it couldn't be found. In a rare run of clear nights I was hoping to get more data centred on the same star.
As near as I can tell I configured both installs the same. What have I missed? What file holds the Henry Draper stars?
