I would like to add some of the minor planets/asteroids to the display. I have had a look in the sssystem.ini file and tried to add Ceres with the osculating elements. I am not sure of format required for the relevant entries and my guesses do not put Ceres anywhere near the right place.

I have a program that I wrote in Basic many years ago that does give the correct position (or the same as a couple of other programs I have tried). So I has obviously mis-interpreted some of the requirements.

Can anyone provide the info.
