About Manuals

In order to conserve paper and lower costs, all the manuals the MPO Software Suite are provided as PDF files only.
The manuals are installed in the DOCS directory under the directory where you installed the programs. You will need Adobe's Acrobat Reader to display and print the files. The program is available free at Adobe's web site.

All programs come with a printed Installation Guide

The MPO Asteroid Viewing Guide does not have an extended manual. The quick start instructions on the release code card will get you started. There is complete on-line help available once the program is started.
