customised the Caldwell list

Made my own Caldwell catalogue in SkyTools partly because the one made for the AL certificate programme did not include the numbering. In the custom notes I included the C designation.

Also gave me a chance to shakedown the netbook after the keyboard rejuvenation. After a weird boot issue, all seems well.

Along the way, I discovered an issue with NGC 4884. SkyTools uses this designation for what others refer to as NGC 4889. Admittedly, there are a gaggle of little galaxies jammed in the area...
