2 Usage

To find the equatorial coordinates of an astronomical object whose name you know simply type:

findcoords  object-name

The object-name should be entered without embedded spaces. The case of letters (upper or lower) is not significant. If the name is recognised then the equatorial coordinates of the object will be displayed. The Right Ascension is shown in sexagesimal hours and the Declination in sexagesimal degrees; both are for equinox J2000.
