Sorted GTO alignment stars


GrayFox65@...
 

AP GTO users,

This is a repost of a pre-egroups message:

If you align your GTO mount as I do, by picking alignment stars from a star
map, a list ordered by constellation rather than by stars in alphabetical
order makes selecting alignment stars much easier.

This email includes such a list. If there are any errors, please let me know.

The list of AP GTO alignment stars in text form follows, sorted by
constellation. Within constellations, the stars are in Greek alphabetical
order. Stars without Greek letter designations follow those with. All four
AP entries are included: designation/constellation, star name, abbreviation,
magnitude. On each line, tabs separate the entries, although that isn't
immediately obvious from the formatting of the text in the email. To properly
format the list into aligned columns, after pasting the text into a new
document, clear all tab settings in your word processing program and reset
them at a spacing that will create aligned columns, e.g. 3", 4", 5".
