Quote:In the book for Carbon Stars and the list if I recall, the RA and Dec are listed in the list. As for them having names, some of the stars on the list only have their catalog number. They may not be named.

Quote:The RASC Observer's Handbook 2013 has a list of about 135 carbon stars with names (e.g. WZ Cas) and RA/Dec, with magnitude ranges. The PC planetarium software Earth Centred Universe (ECU) Handbook Edition, free to every Handbook recipient, has this list already loaded. http://rasc.ca/handbook

Quote:Quote:What would carbon stars look like though a telescope? Like a white star that is tinged with red or orange. In comparison to nearby white stars, a carbon star, to some eyeballs, is distinctly red or orange.
First and foremost observing love: naked eye.
Last but not least, telescopes.
And I sometimes dabble with cameras.
I want to do more then just look.
