norman at gruber:~$ java -Xmx256m -jar AstroStack3le.jar
java.io.FileNotFoundException: default.apf (No such file or directory)
Screen size :java.awt.Dimension[width=1280,height=1024]
Screen resolution :95
norman at gruber:~$
I used this application some time ago and, from what I can remember,
when files are loaded an image should appear in the top left hand panel.
This does not happen.
