NGC, Messier - more???

  • James Cunningham

    Besides NGC and Messier catalogs, does Stellarium have other catalogs? Also,
    when you go to the search window, how do you input the numbers. I was putting
    in M027 to go to the Dumbell Nebulae and then someone told me to just put M27.
    Does Stellarium take up to 4 number and do you always leave off the firs ")"

    The designations of Messier objects don't normally include a leading zero, so
    yes, don't use one.

    No, Stellarium's nebulae catalog is limited for now to the NGC. I think that
    the Messier and IC deisgnations are defined as synonyms to the NGC
