Catalog and list updated in OP, thanks. Added parameters like Epoch, SlopeParam, Albedo, RefPlane, etc where missing.

I am sorry, was there other parameters that I missed? Can you tell me so I can add them next time?
Also i never added epoch because I didn't know which value to use.

Slope, Albedo, Magnitude values help SpaceEngine better simulate the object. Epoch value is the time of orbital elements you find for an object, expressed in Julian Days. When it's not in that form, we can use a converter.

Thanks! I kept making the mistake of expressing epoch in seconds and was wondering why my numbers seemed to large.
I assume slope, albedo, and magnitude are used to calculate an object's brightness, what is the difference between them?
