Can't remember how to supply CCD simulator with stars

Hey all,

I  used to have my old Ekos set up so that the Telescope and CCD Simulator could get images that the plate solver can chew on, and I can neither remember how nor remember how to find the instructions for that. Refresh my ancient memory, would you please?

.
The GSC-ACT is a recalibration of the Hubble Guide Star Catalog (GSC), version 1.1, using the ACT (Astrographic Catalog/Tycho) from the US Naval Observatory.
.
The ACT offers better positions and more stars than the reference catalogs originally used to reduce the Guide Star Catalog, so the astrometric fit can include more terms... and this is a very good thing, because the plates include distortions that the simple third-order GSC 1.1 fit cannot accommodate. In GSC-ACT, terms up to order 5 are included.
