    Hi,

    I'm trying to show the names of stars but for some some reason, it's not
    working at all.
    Here's what I have right now:

    I'd like to label each star currently shown but I've spent hours and haven't
    worked out how to do that. I'm sure it was possible in the past... If I can't
    do that, is there another way to manually show labels for those stars?

    The reason I want to do this is because I've taken a photograph and would like
    to show the star labels alongside it.

    Cheers,
    Durand

    What star lore are you using?

    Western star lore will show the name of this star as Botein. Most of other
    star lores do not have a name for this star.

    Yes
    Star names vary with cultures so the table of star names is kept in the
    respective \skycultures\? folder in a file called star_names.fab. This file
    can be edited to add any names you like using the Hip reference in the format
    that can be gleaned from the other entries.
