Another Visual Sky Simulation issue?
#3
Hi Chris,

If you download one of the Palomar Sky Survey (PSS) images for a bright globular cluster, you'll see that the center of the cluster is 'burned out' with no resolvable stars. Images like this are the starting point for many of the star catalogs & if the core of the cluster is 'burned out', the stars can't be identified individually.

As Greg said, the newer catalogs may not have this limitation.

I hope this helps,

Phil S.
