Theres a free programme called Stellarium which will allow you to set your viewing location and give you the co-ordinates, its also very usefull for planning your observing sessions as its a planetarium which will show you what should be visible from your location at any given time or date, weather permitting !

A search on Yahoo or Google will point you to the free download.
