Today, I read about the discovery of an exoplanet, Gliese B 3470, in the constellation Cancer. The star, GJ 3470 has a magnitude of 12.xx. I tried putting it in my observation list in SkySafari 6 plus but it’s not in the database. Do I need SkySafari pro? Does anyone have a suggestion on how to find this faint star?

Thanks. I’ll have to look for this in a few months. The sun is right in the middle of Cancer.
