Search UGC object in Carte du ciel?
      #6136507 - 10/14/13 09:33 AM

I got NOT FOUND when I try to search for "UGC10214" but did get it by using PGC5712. I wonder if I need to add ugc catalog in order to find it using the UGC number? I have downloaded the ugc catalog here:

http://www.stargazing.net/astropc/oldversion/external.html

However, it seems to be for the old CdC. And my CdC 3.8 seems to need some .hdr file instead.

Even with quite a bit google and CdC's wiki, I feel it is still confusing for me to add catalog. Thanks for the help.

Puck

The quick solution is to get on the Sky Charts Yahoogroup and ask Patrick...

Have you tried to use the CdC internet search? I just tested it and it seems to work fine.

@Uncle Rod: I already did and there was no response for quite a few days....

@Todd, interesting! I didn't know that. I'll try it.

Patrick does not do this for a living. Give him a while.

Andrew at the Yahoo forum has been so kind to generate a UGC catalog in that group. It works very nicely. If you are interested, here is the link of my post there:
