Ref to using Stellarium with SGP’s F & M wizard…
There are 2 ways you can do this.
Here’s No 1
Select your chosen object inside Stellarium so you see it’s designated name in the top left corner
Do a Ctrl ‘C’ which will copy ‘ALL’ of the selected objects data
Have the F & M wizard open and click in the ‘Object’ box
Ctrl ‘V’ will paste the name line of the object in the box
Copying & pasting the ‘M34’ object will paste the following:
Spiral cluster (M 34 - NGC 1039 - Cr 31 - Mel 17)
This will fail as it is, you have to delete what you don’t need, Use only M34 or NGC1039, Wont work
with an objects common name, also wont do anything beginning with either Cr, B, C or Mel
What does work well is any object beginning with M, IC, LBN, NGC or HIP (for stars), just remember
to delete everything else. Once object has been identified, the RA and DEC boxes will be populated
with objects coordinates and so will the sequencer on target creation.
Copy your selected object in Stellarium
In F & M wizard, change the ‘Dot’ selector from ‘Object’ to the one with RA next to it
Double click in the RA coordinates box so the contents is selected
Ctrl ‘V’ to paste
On paste, the RA and DEC boxes will be populated with the coordinates from Stellarium for
your object, just click ‘Fetch’ - Be aware that this method will not populate the ‘Object’ box
with a name so you will be prompted for a name when hitting the ‘Create Sequence’ button.
Hope this helps
