A great man called Eric (Cildarith) issued here on Cloudy Nights in the Observational Astrophysics Forum a list of 2343 Carbon stars brighter than Mag. 13 to me personally.
The list was originally posted on 15th April 2019 under the heading "26 carbon stars in Andromeda" and it is from Simbad.
Please check it out.
As a result, I have been going through it line by line and page by page.
But it lasts a whacking 24 pages.
Many of the carbon stars cannot be observed from my home town of Dublin, Ireland - such as those found over southern hemisphere skies.
But what I have been doing up to now is picking a certain constellation such as Andromeda, Bootes, Cassiopeia and, more recently, Cancer.
I then work out the the right ascensions and declinations of such constellations.
I then go through this large list to discover what carbon stars are contained in such constellations page by page.
That's quite ponderous I'm sure you agree.
The RA's are not all in order.
What I would like to do is to revise the list.
And also, very importantly, to rearrange them in order of Right Ascension (RA).
Can anyone help me out?
I would greatly appreciate your help.
Thank you very much.
If it can't be done, I will just have to continue with the way the original list has been done.
