Summary0002374: QuickSat: Hit limit of 5000 reading intrinsic magnitudes file
DescriptionIf I understood this right, it seems the qs.mag file has grown above 5000 entries (more than QuickSat can handle?):

QuickSat - Version 2.15N - June 4, 2010
Hit limit of 5000 reading intrinsic magnitudes file
Entries after NCAT=45662 will be ignored
Additional InformationThis happened on Linux armhf /Raspberry Pi (Twister OS).

I confirm this issue after updating to the last qsmag file.

For me this is solved by updating quicksat.exe to the last version 2.15O
Can you try if this also work for you on the RPI?

- download from
- extract the zip
- copy quicksat.exe to /usr/share/skychart/data/quicksat/

If this also work for you I will update the file in the distribution packages.

That was easy :)

I can confirm it's working on the Raspberry Pi (Wine with Box86*):

QuickSat - Version 2.15O - May 23, 2020
   18 predictions written to file satlist.out

Thanks for the fix.

Thank you for the confirmation and the link to the i386 emulator this is very useful.

I commit the change, so it will be globally available in Monday beta version:
