How to generate star fields for my camera's FOV?

Fri, 01/13/2023 - 07:57

Hi, I remember doing this before, several years ago, but I do not recall how it was done.  I have a FOV of 27.5 minutes square, and I am centered on exoplanet K2-284 b.  How would I generate a picture of what I would see in this FOV so that I can identify the correct star?  Thanks!

Use the name K2-284, leave…

Use the name K2-284, leave out the b.

If you leave the name box clear:

Type in the coordinates 05:16:33.79     20:15:17.6

Select CCD, Chart, type 27.5 into the FOV, type in 15 for a magnitude limit.

Click on the Plot button.
