Understanding Optimum Observation time
Hi dw_Skyhound,

I don't know if the ST3 Standard version includes the Data Manager like the Pro version or not, but if it does, you can download Observing Lists from the Skyhound website. I found a list there called 'Autostar Alignment Stars' that may be what you're looking for. The list contains many of the brightest stars in the sky.

The Skyhound site also has lists for the objects in Burnham's Celestial Handbook (BCH) that you might find interesting. BCH lists many interesting stars and DSO's by constellation. Skyhound also has observing lists compiled by many different sources.

Finally the Database Power Search can provide a list of stars that meet your criteria, such as brighter than 2 magnitude, etc. as well as many other objects.

I hope that I understood your question & that this is helpful,

Phil S.
