If you're looking for info on a specific object, and you know its exact identifier (for example, 'PN G294.1+43.6' or 'Cl Stephenson 2'), type that in one of the boxes on the right (in section ) and hit "goto". For objects in the Messier, Bennett and Caldwell lists, a handy drop-down selection is provided.
If you have no idea what you're looking for, section will allow you to explore the sky visible during your current observing session. Note that you have to be logged in to use this feature (computers aren't that good yet).
