Syntax
public static void MakeCatEntry(
	string catalog,
	string star_name,
	int star_num,
	double ra,
	double dec,
	double pm_ra,
	double pm_dec,
	double parallax,
	double rad_vel,
	ref CatEntry star
)

Parameters

catalog
Type: SystemString
Three-character catalog identifier (e.g. HIP = Hipparcos, FK5 = FK5). This identifier also specifies the reference system and units of the data; i.e. they are the same as the specified catalog.
star_name
Type: SystemString
Object name (50 characters maximum).
star_num
Type: SystemInt32
Object number in the catalog.
ra
Type: SystemDouble
Right ascension of the object.
dec
Type: SystemDouble
Declination of the object.
pm_ra
Type: SystemDouble
Proper motion in right ascension.
pm_dec
Type: SystemDouble
Proper motion in declination.
parallax
Type: SystemDouble
Parallax.
rad_vel
Type: SystemDouble
Radial velocity.
star
Type: ASCOM.AstrometryCatEntry
OUT: Structure containing the input data
