Quote:Zeta is a good take-off star for star hopping to the globular M107 or the open cluster Dolidze 27. Maybe the gentleman uses Zeta for an alignment star to improve local Go-To slew accuracy in that area of the sky and ran into the coordinate question. In any case, a simple question like this is a minor momentary deviation from the main subject matter of this forum. It can easily be answered regardless of what forum it shows up in without ruffling too many feathers. Clear skies to you.
