The future of Astronomy. Why do stars have the names that they do? How come there's so much confusion? I'll be talking about why, and putting forward my ideas for, finally, bringing stellar nomenclature into the 20th century. And there's catalogues to download too!
It's been a while coming, but I have posted part 2 of the Extended BSC. This contains stars in the following southerly constellations:
The 4 asterisked constellations have some final additions to confirm, so I may update these with some additional entries in the future. There will also be further work done on star designations, but in the meantime, I encourage you to use the supplied Gould Numbers or Near Star numbers if there is otherwise only a HD/SAO/HIP number.
