Searching One-click library using co-ordinates

Recommended Posts


A simple question but as a new user of TL this has me stumped !

I am trying to search the existing one-click library using RA/Dec co-ordinates. Every delimiter that I attempt to employ to separate the h:m:s or degrees etc is rejected as Ra or Dec being invalid after the first 1 or 2 digits are entered. For example, I get this "invalid" error when I try and use either <space> or <:> or h/m/s, before moving onto the next part of the RA or Dec.

I am specifically searching for J2000 RA 5h 30m 18s and Dec 12deg 46min 11sec.

Grateful for any advice.

Hi Dan, 

Try to use the formatting as in the screenshot attached. Be sure to click on the APPLY button with the mouse (do not use th return button on your keyboard). 

I have used 15000 as radius of search in arcmin, you can se the value you prefer. With 15000 I have 4 dataset as result. 

Clear Skies,

Hi Ernesto

Very many thanks. I think my problem was that the "invalid" message quickly appeared and was maintained as I continued to enter more digits.. I placed too much emphasis on the early and continued appearance of the "invalid" message and stopped entry before completing a full RA set of numbers !

Many Thanks
