Spectrum Lab V2 - Meteor Scatter

Hi, just configuring Spectrum Lab for Meteor-Scatter tracking but : - how do I re-assign destination for output file plse?? it puts it in Spectrum directory as default but I need it in another for processing. Can't find the switch.

Under the File | Directories menu, there's a tickbox that sets it to use the C:\Spectrum folder. I think if you untick it you can set your own folder location - so long as the program has write rights to the folder.

OK, found it - still looks a bit of a mystery at the mo but I'm sure I'll figure it. Don't want to screw it up at the mo due to Geminids peaking but will give it a go in 2 days.Many thanks Gfamily2 (could he make this prog any more obtuse?)

How did you get on? I was clouded out for the Geminids.
How can I be one with the universe when we don't know what 96% of it is.
