    If you right-click an individual star and choose "show info", alternate names and designations are shown in the top section of the Info panel.

    Also, if you open the Preferences window, (from the Starry Night menu > Preferences ...) and choose "Cursor Tracking (HUD)" you can choose to show various additional names/designations e.g. Flamsteed. When you mouse over a star, that new information will then be shown in the HUD that appears.

    Hope that helps.

    I can see only catalogues Bayer, Flamsteed, HIP and TYC. What about other catalogues such as HR, SAO, HD?

    There are certainly catalogs that are not included in the cross-reference, but the beauty of Starry Night is that you can create your own, if you like. Have a look at this article to see how you can create your own catalogs:

    Or have a look here to see what other catalogs are already available:
