How often do you need to update the star database? If the unit is working as a stand alone tracker on orbit?

Very rarely, if at all? This is actually the first time I've thought about the question, it hasn't come up anywhere in my work with OpenStarTracker. A little Googling shows that at least some of NASA's own software is using a catalog from 1997, so I'm thinking it's not a big concern.

Ah ok! Yeah I thought that was true but I just wanted to be sure. I'd hate to be on orbit and need an update! lol Thanks!
