Summary0002435: mpcorb.dat way to large, will not succeed the download
DescriptionThis file is way to large on the minorplanetcenter website. It refuses to keep downloading, no matter how or what device your using, have tried satellite and also wi fi connections. 209 mb is just to large. It stops in the middle, and refuses to restart. Cannot save the file either, Unless copy and paste would work to do so. I have no idea why, a browser will not save the file unless its complete. And its never complete cause it will download. I used to get like 125 mb files, but, this size is given way to big a problem. And the small download mpc5000 is a very small file, compared to how many asteroids there are.

I cannot solve your networking issues but by default Skychart get the compressed file MPCORB.DAT.gz that is only 61 MB in size.

Open the menu Setup / Updates ( Setup / Internet in version 4.2) and be sure the file name end with .gz. If not click the button MPCORB.
