Re: [nbos] Astro sector generator feedback

I think ChView from Solstation will do the trick. I have used it to convert
from x,y,z to RA and the reverse. It is also free. It does not contain all
of the most recent stars but has a large number. I wonder if anyone has done
a converter to allow these files to be entered into AS?

I had started it awhile back but gave up after the third search led to no
identifiable star.

I was using the kepner_1000lyr_stars.csv and getting the exosolar planets
data from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_extrasolar_planets and
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_unconfirmed_exoplanets to be done next
and with http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_extrasolar_planet_extremes
planned on being done last.

The problem that I have is with star named WASP 1, WASP 18, XO3, ect. For
me to enter them, I need to convert the RA and Dec to something in X,Y,Z.
Could someone make a converter? Or point me to one that doesn't need a
thick instruction manual.

I don't have a problem with finding the BD, CPD, CoD, HD, HIP, they are all
in the csv and I can find them once in a while in the stars "Other
designations" box, but even then it has holes as HIP 7513 isn't listed.

But its going to be a while before I get time to figure out how to do the
rest.

the Forth Bridge as new data are always coming through, but it would be
quite satisfying to have!
