|The Alignment Star Chart (ASC) is a
convenience for owners of the Gemini
GoTo system by Losmandy.
This system has many more >160 stars than the other systems and is
more complex. For that reason, the map had to be doubled in size and
displayed with 0h-12h on one side and 12h-24h on the other. This extra
size allows the display of the names or designations of almost all of
the stars. The Gemini system has some stars at > +70 degrees and
< -70 degrees of declination. Those are not displayable on the map
since it goes only to +60 and -60 degrees. Fortunately there are only
about 8 stars of the 160+ that cannot be displayed. The
non-displayable stars are listed.
New Features of the L4 map:
The preferred Alignment Stars which are easy to use on the menu system
are in ALL CAPS on the chart. (all alignment stars are still shown).
new stars available have been charted.
Hash marks have been put on the RA at 1 hour intervals to make
estimating the RA of stars more convenient. 0h-12h are on one side of
the sheet. 12h-24h are on the back.
with all of our ASCs, the Gemini L4 is fully laminated, and can be
bound into any one of our Telrad Finder Charts if purchased at the same
time by request.
