    Historical star coordinates
    From: John Huth

    Does anyone know of a location that gives you star coordinates back some distance in time?    In particular I'm interested in 1000 AD, but also 1600 BC to present.   

    I suppose I could chug through a formula of the precession of the equinoxes, but I was hoping that there is a handy website where you punch in your date, and get decl. and RA for major stars.
