Does any one know how to enter star information into the ASGT CG5. The numbers I have from the Tonight's Sky Observation Plan assigns a number like SAO287737 for Mizar. How would I enter this in the hand controller under the Stars menu?

I believe you can enter SAO numbers by hitting the STAR button on the controller. You can also find Mizar by hitting LIST and scrolling to the "Named Stars" catalog entry.

I believe you have to enter the leading zeros if the SAO number is less than 6 digits.
