    Non-navigational Star coordinates
    From: Modris Fersters
    Date: 2021 Mar 3, 10:05 -0800

    Hello!

    Maybe someone can help me by recomending good internet sources where to find accurat coordinates of all Stars (not only navigational Stars) on any date. Initially I thought that Stellarium could serve as a good tool for this purpose, but I found that RA (of course: converted to SHA) and declination of the stars differs from those published for example in F. Reed almanac. Difference can reach some tenths of arc minute. And I am sure that Franks almanac can be trusted more than Stellarium.    

    The main purpose why I am interested in  nonnavigational star coordinates is to use any stars for sextant main scale calibrating (not only standart navigational ones). And that is why I need cooridinates with accuracy of 0.1 minute.
