Search by co-ordinates in Starry Night 7 Pro Plus

Recommended Posts


Does anyone know how to search by co-ordinates in Starry Night 7 Pro Plus. I'm looking for a couple of objects that do not seem to be in its data base. I've tried the Advanced Search function and that did not seem to do it either?

LOL! Am I missing something obvious?

Not sure what you're trying to achieve.

If you already know the ra and dec of the objects you should be able to search for those and see what's there under the cursor.

If there's nothing there they're not in the database.

      I cannot get my starry night pro plus 7 on an iMacOS high Sierra computer to communicate with the NexStar+ hand set on a CPC Celestron telscope.
      I have upgraded the handset from version 4 to version 5 and bought a new usb data cable , plus a 5-Pin Mini B Cable to fit into the NexStar+ handset,all to no avail. Please help!

      Just wanted to see what you guys thought about the Starry Night 7 software. It came with my scope and I thought it would be great. I considered getting the Pro Plus before I found out Celestron gives a copy of 7se with their scopes, but I'm not very impressed with the version that I have, so it makes me wonder if the pricey pro plus would be about the same. I have a Surface pro 4 tablet that I love but after hours of trying to getting the software to install, I gave up and blew the dust off of my old laptop because I knew it would have the proper drivers. SN7 installed and I've been playing around with the program (don't yet have the scope to pc cable for control) but honestly I'm not impressed. My surface has StarWalk 2 that I use as a guide when I'm out observing which I feel is decent (constant compass cal issues). Also, if you can't get microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 on your pc/tablet, know that starry night and the ASCOM control won't install. I would have had to reinstall windows 10 on the surface (among other things) to get the .NET 3.5 drivers to install, which I felt was just too much. I'm very computer literate and it doesn't scare me, but I knew that my 6 year old, falling apart laptop could run it because it has windows 7.  It agitates me that the almost $1,000 Surface can't install the older 3.5 driver, but thats the first problem that I've had out of it. 
      What's your thoughts on the software? Any others that you prefer?
      Also, what other chart & control software is out there? I know of a few, just want to see what the opinions are.
