How to use SkyTools to track Texas 45 observations

SkyTools is great for planning and logging observations so naturally you'll want to use it to track Texas 45 progress. However, once you start logging Texas 45 objects, you'll quickly realize that keeping those logs separate from your other observations seems impossible. The trick is to create a new observing list group, say Columbus, a new observer, say Texas 45, and a new column scheme to visually keep track of your progress.

Attached is the procedure, step by step and illustrated. Also attached is the observation log that you can edit. I'll attach a cheat sheet later for those already familiar with SkyTools.

Thanks to Steve Goldberg for vetting my procedure and Amelia Goldberg for suggesting changes to the observation log.
