Using Wolfram Alpha to create observing lists
      #6052241 - 08/29/13 10:21 AM

I've been playing around with using Wolfram Alpha in support of my observing sessions. Here's an example of a WA query. This one creates a list of carbon stars with associated visual magnitude and color index:

I've even managed to get this list into Star Safari via some processing in Microsoft Word and Excel. Anyone else out there using WA to create observing lists? Let's see some of your queries!
