Make sure the file is on that folder.
Also, this may not work: NoPlanets true
In the older versions this option make star to disappear, not sure about 0.972.

But if SE says:
[MT] ERROR: seScript::Load(): Can't open the file "catalogs/stars/MyStar.sc"
then something goes wrong. Maybe the file have a date earlier than the CatalogsSE.pak?

The catalogsSE.pak is dated 26/12/2014 is that correct? I tried previously to make a star but SE kept CTD and all the stars in the catalog plus planets (couldnt do a search even for earth kept getting the message OBJECT NOT FOUND) so i reinstalled SE. I may have saved MyStar.sc in my documents so that i would have the details ready-however as you stated the file may have an earlier time - which it does even if it is by a few hours. I may also have corrupted it in the process so I will delete it and try from scratch. when i make my new star do i replace one from the binary catalog and use the tag barrycenter star or can i name a new object with a name of my choice and put in the coordinates RA DEC lum etc from scratch or does the stars position have to fit in a specific place in 3d space - in other words i coulldnt create a star in the "sky" that should not be there without effecting nearby stars.

---------------------------------------------
SOLUTION: Deleted old file. Recreated the file and saved as MyStar.sc. Made a link to universe.cfg in the stars section. Started SE again and searched for my new star - alas still nothing appeared despite omitting the NO PLANETS TRUE. I have since found my NEW STAR. In the tutorial at the beginning of this thread it says to config the file in UNIVERSE.CFG as

"catalog/stars/MyStar.sc"
INSTEAD for SE version 0.9.7.2 type

"catalogs/CatalogsSE.pak/stars/MyStar.sc - which works and bingo found my star "ACRAEPHEUS" and 10 planets biggrin

I am making a binary star in SE, but I have no idea how to calculate the orbital periods for those stars. If I leave period out of the catalog, SE generates different periods for both stars. Does someone know a simple equation for this? The wikipedia page about binaries is not very informative about this issue.

Edit: just read space engineer's message about the new thread. I will ask the question there as well.
