Wtf, they probably changed the naming convention. Original asteroids database in SE (Asteroids.sc, Asteroids-small.sc etc) is made by processing a catalog file downloaded from MPC. This was many years ago though. Maybe all asteroids in SE should be updated to the new naming?

I can confirm that MPC is still using the naming convention we are using now, in fact my data came from their database.

It seems that both naming conventions are used.
That's why I used the first name without parentheses and the second name with parentheses. But only if I found the name in the sources like that. For example, Wikipedia. If I found only the first spelling of an asteroid, then not. (That may be inconsistent.)
Maybe this spelling should be used:
"Name/Number Name/(Number) Name/<other designations>"

Seems good. But all asteroids what are already in SE must be updated. Maybe someone can make a Python script?

A simple regex in notepad++ like find
/\((\d*)\)(\s\w*)
and substitute with
/\1\2/\(\1\)\2
does the trick.

edit:
Oops, I forgot there are catalogued asteroids without an official name like 2001 FA70
also, "Lempo/(47171) Lempo/1999 TC36 A1/(47171) 1999 TC36 A1"

There's a small error in the name of M43 nebula, De Mairan's nebula is written "De Marain's". This is the code for correction:
Remove "De Marains Nebula" { ParentBody "Milky Way" }

Nebula    "De Mairan's Nebula/M 43/NGC 1982"
{
    Galaxy  "Milky Way"
    Type    "Diffuse"
    RA       5 35 29.37
    Dec     -5 15 22.68
    Dist     428
    Radius   0.4
    AppMagn  9.0
    NoModel  true    // this nebula is implemented as a part of M 42 model

The Ross 752/Wolf 1055 system has an additional star in the center of the system.
scr00661.jpg

This is because the star has more names in 'Hipparchos.csv' than in the newer 'BrownDwarfs-bin.sc'. (Discovered by 'Platinum Hero' on Steam.)

I made a fix for it.
