# Need help finding a star

I've tried utilizing "Google Sky", however, once I've found the location of said star and am in the process of zooming in, the site craps out. Anyway... if there's someone out there with a little more experience in this field, here are the coordinates of the star i'm searching for: 10h 10m 11.1s, +4 3' 12.3"

I'd appreciate the effort, and thank's in advance.

• Do you happen to know what epoch your coordinates are stated in? Is it J2000? – zephyr Oct 7 '16 at 13:07

As far as I can see, this is just a faint star. Here is some data from the USNO B1.0 catalogue:

USNO B1.0 star

B1.0 ID: 0940-0181715

RA: 10h10m11.13s +/- 69 milliarcseconds

declination: + 4 03' 12.3" +/- 195 milliarcseconds

Epoch: 1977.9

Proper motion in RA: 12 +/- 2 milliarcseconds/year

Proper motion in dec: 6 +/- 6 milliarcseconds/year

Photometry:

Band mag Cal Survey Emulsi field S/G xi eta

B1: 14.36 1 POSS-I 103a-O 550 4 -0.05 0.03

R1: 13.33 1 POSS-I 103a-E 550 1 0.05 0.01

B2: 14.07 2 POSS-II IIIa-J 782 9 0.09 0.26

R2: 12.79 2 POSS-II IIIa-F 782 8 -0.07 -0.02

I: 12.37 2 POSS-II IV-N 781 -0.04 -0.30

"Cal" = calibration: 0 means calibrated via bright standard stars on the plate; 1 = via faint standards on the plate; 2 = faint standards on adjacent plate; 3 = faint standards two plates away, etc. "S/G" = star/galaxy index. 11=object looked starlike, to 0=fuzzy/galaxy-like. xi, eta = displacement of the star's position on this plate, in arcseconds, relative to the mean solution.
