I like doing science. The way complex applications turn out from basic principles interest me. I am interested in making stuff, doing something different. To be more rhetorical, discovering something no one has ever seen.

To the last line, "ultra precisely, yes"!

comment Are ascending node of sun, the point of intersection of prime meridian and equator and center of earth all collinear?
No. They can align at some special times, though. Why do you think they should be collinear?

comment Can Summer Triangle asterism be used for navigation?
@kaka Depends on how you're doing the above calculation. In general, the error effects from refraction/seeing etc will make it worse than GPS already. If you're going ultra-precise, well, carrying a GPS is easier.

comment Is it difficult to see DSO in your eyepiece?
For telescopes of intermediate to high aperture, for some extended DSOs like the Eagle Nebula, the magnification is so high that the object occupies your whole field and you can't distinguish it. Viewfinder provides a better view. Is that what you mean? @Takku Is that you? It was unexpected to see you here, I must say. :P

comment How many planets do on average different star types support?
There is no theoretical limit, but a statistical limit. @called2voyage gave a good answer on these lines. Kepler recently confirmed over 700 planets based on this method. Other than that, take some good advice from this forum. Change that effin' classification, for astronomers' sake.

comment Where can I find a catalog of all stars in the Milky Way?
@self He says, "known stars". It implies catalogued. Otherwise, you got a point
