    Dear Andres,

    Thanks for your reply. Still, and

    to the best of my (current) knowledge,

    * IMCEE enables you to compute hi-accuracy Solar System Bodies positions, but not stars, and

    * The US NAVY Server enables you to compute low precision (i.e. +/- 0.05') LOP's and you can trick it into giving you Star Coordinates, but you can get only +/- 0.05' accuracy, and

    * I am not aware that JPL enables Star Positions computations ...

    Please be so kind as to correct me if I am wrong, and

    So, and for the time being, I am not sure whether any web on-line hi accuracy computation is available for Stars apparent coordinates ...

    Best Regards
