Finding stars with CPC800

Recommended Posts

Have had this great scope for a couple of months now, and is great in finding objects with a designated number, but am wanting to find other objects. What is the easiest way to say ... find v Aqillae, and other carbon stars? Do I try and find the SAO number?

In tracking down comets, is it best to put the RA and DEC in?

Thanks :smiley:

Thank you for that brantuk, but gosh, a multitude of stars there in those catalogues!! Will see if I can narrow the SAO list down a bit.
