Multiple Observation Search

Please enter a Search Radius and then a list of RA, Dec and Names in the large window.

The format is not too strict and the following are examples that can be processed:

  13:30:52.5 -01:50:27.0 Abell 1750  (hms & d ' " format, colon separated)
  13 30 52.5 -01 50 27.0 Abell 1750  (hms & d ' " format, space separated)
  13h30m52.5s -01d50'27.0" Abell 1750  (hms & d ' " format)
  202.71875 -1.84083 Abell 1750  (decimal degrees)

Search Radius :  Decimal arcmins (eg; 60) (min=0.5, max=1200)
