quickie question for C du C users.

I'm new to using C du C... is there a way to make it show meteor show radiant points?

Been clickin' all around and can't seem to find it.

 

thanks!!

Ain't there. However, the author at the following link uses CdC maps to display DIY radiants:

 

Major Meteor Showers in 2017 by Wes Stone

 

Radiant charts were produced using maps from the free Cartes du Ciel application.

 

 

You can download & print the maps from Stone's site. I can't vouch for the "accuracy" of the maps.

 

(Consider Stellarium which features meteor showers. Also SkyTools 3 which allows you to create a list of major meteor showers in the program's Special Events tab for display. SkyTools 3 is not free, but worth every penny.)
