1. LaTeX can't find some files
Check you environment variable set up, or make sure the right files are in the directory with your document (see section Installation).
2. nat2jour.pl produces strange results

such as astrobib also have a file called
apj.bst, and this
may be lurking somewhere on your system; make sure it doesn't get
found first). The items in your input

firstname.lastname@example.org; include the entry from the
