 +==EQTour - Tour Files==
 +Tour definitions are stored in text files (*.lst) located in the same directory as //​EQTour.exe//​ These files can be freely edited (in notepad for example) to add new entries. The format is as follows :
 +
 +  *a first line with !J2000, ​ if  the tour file contains ​ J2000  coordinates ​ that  require ​ precession ​ and nutation ​ to  be  applied by  EQTOUR. ​
 +  *lines starting with a semi-colon or hash (#) are comment lines
 +  *Object definition take the form of RA; DEC; Name & description (typically the name and  a  reference ​ to  the constellation where the object can be found). ​
 +  *RA and Dec are decimal representations in Hours and Degrees respectively.
 +
 +
 +If you don't require all of the sample Tour files either delete them, rename them *.sav, or move them to another directory. Note that the program needs at least one list file to provide any useful functionality!
