Search by DEC and RA coordinates

Hi,

I don't know if this an enhancement request, or I don't know how to use the app.  I would like to be able to enter RA and DEC coordinates and for the app to point to that specific location in the sky, is that possible?

The application is that I'll be plate solving an image, I'll get RA/DEC coordinates and I would like to use SkySafari Pro to show me where this coordinates are located in the sky.

Thanks for your help,

Miquel

    Miquel,

    Yes that is possible.  Go to the Coordinates settings and there you can enter the coordinates that the chart is centered on.  You don't have to enter things like (' "" or º), SkySafari will parse it correctly.  You will have to switch to Equatorial Coordinates if it is currently in Horizon Coordinates (Alt/Az).
