Do you have in mind any database/sites that I can search for stars that matches a given surface temperature and an absolute magnitude?

For example, when I enter Temperature=9,500K & AbsoluteMagnitude=0.58 then the search engine returns the result Vega and some other stars.

Any suggestions are appreciated!

Though not much convenient, I found one.


This is a database that contains information of a lot of stars.

I may use excel to use this database and derive any needed results.
