Summary0002217: asteroid research
I wanted to report a problem. I use an external program to control the observatory that interfaces with SkyChart to find objects of deep sky.
If I try to search for a numbered asteroid, I have no problems, but if I try to search for a new asteroid not yet numbered, the program finds nothing or returns incorrect values.
But if I try to do the same search directly on SkyChart, I find the asteroid.
I have already tried to contact the software developer who replied that there might be a problem with the search command in SkyChart.
Steps To ReproduceUse external software to manage the observatory that interface with SkyChart.
TagsNo tags attached.

This is because the object name must be enclosed in double quote if it contain space character.

In this case it return info about asteroid number 2019 because it ignore anything after the first space:
> Chart_1 : 01h21m21.97s +13°58'10.4" As (2019) van Albada m: 15.1 ...

This return the right information:
SEARCH "2019 UU"
> Chart_1 : 01h29m05.33s -04°48'12.6" As 2019 UU m: 21.3 ...

Can you try this way?

I have updated the documentation with this information:
