comment Is the light we see from stars extremely old?
"In the frame of reference of the light itself the journey from Proxima to here is instantaneous." Could you expand on that with some explanation please?

comment Calculation of right ascension and declination
@AlexeyBobrick I've had a stab at explaining the RA calculation too. I'd be interested to know if it is clear/correct.

Oh, I see. Sorry. Obviously your votes are yours to dish out as you see fit, but I feel it is a little unfair to down vote for something that is clearly explained in the answer. Will you also down vote the person who provides the other half of the solution?
