Using Autostar to observe stars
Posted 01 May 2013 - 02:53 PM
Some stars also have a designation number (Sigma 1245 has a #083307)
Can anyone tell me how to enter these identification numbers into Autostar?
Thanks for your assistance.

Excerpt from http://www.meade.com.../autostars.html
"For example, to enter NGC 6960 on the Autostar display, the observer selects in sequence (and in a few seconds of keystrokes): OBJECT/DEEP SKY/NGC OBJECTS/6960. When GO TO is pressed, the telescope moves at 5° per second on both axes, simultaneously, to place NGC 6960, the Veil Nebula in the constellation Cygnus, in the telescope's field of view."
