    Re: Algorithm for star ephemerides?

    Thanks Bill. I already had a calculation for GHA Aries, which is why I was
    asking for the SHA of stars. How long is the Almanac's data valid for? Even
    w/o it, it seems to me that at this point, if I could get my hands on some
    FK5 catalog data, I would be in business after looking at the NOVAS code.
    But all my searches on FK5 don't get me what I want :( Damn Internet ;-). So
    I keep looking...
    
    Another dumb question: how do I get from the name of a star to its # in a
    catalog like the one Ed Falk mentions?
    
    Thanks,
    YA
