STAR Atlas:PRO frequently asked questions - FAQs

How do I Identify Celestial Objects and display their Astrophysical data ?
How do I Identify Stars when No Labels are displayed ?

All celestial objects (Stars, Planets, Comets, Deep Sky Objects, etc) displayed on the desktop chart are easily identified when Labels are Turned Off.
Furthermore when Labels are displayed, you may still display astrophysical data for the celestial object using STAR Atlas:PRO's Identify command.

How to Identify an object and display its data:-

1. Point to the object with your mouse cursor and right-click on it.
2. From the popup menu that then appears, choose [Identify], the celestial object's name and its associated data are then displayed from the STAR Atlas:PRO database.

We hope this helps your enjoyment of the many facets of this fascinating program.
