Absolute Mag data in The SkyX SAE


Recommended Posts

Anyone know if The SkyX Serious Astronomer Edition has Absolute Magnitude for stellar objects and if so where is it? I've search the configuration options and the documentation but can't find it anywhere.

Clearly where distance is known I can calculate it (more or less) from the apparent mag which SkyX does provide but this is a drag if you want a lot of them.

Hi John, not sure what you are trying to do but I found this 

Hipparcos stars with good absolute magnitudes

here http://www.astro.lu.se/~lennart/MVstars.html I am sure you could get the data into a spreadsheet. I also know you can import your own database into The Sky X Pro but I don't know about SAE. 


Regards Andrew
