Assembly: ASCOM.Astrometry (in ASCOM.Astrometry.dll) Version: 6.0.0.0 (6.1.1.2619)

Syntax

C#
void Set(
	double RA,
	double Dec,
	double ProMoRA,
	double ProMoDec,
	double Parallax,
	double RadVel
)
Visual Basic
Sub Set ( _
	RA As Double, _
	Dec As Double, _
	ProMoRA As Double, _
	ProMoDec As Double, _
	Parallax As Double, _
	RadVel As Double _
)
Visual C++
void Set(
	double RA, 
	double Dec, 
	double ProMoRA, 
	double ProMoDec, 
	double Parallax, 
	double RadVel
)

Parameters

RA
Type: System..::..Double
Catalog mean right ascension (hours)
Dec
Type: System..::..Double
Catalog mean declination (degrees)
ProMoRA
Type: System..::..Double
Catalog mean J2000 proper motion in right ascension (sec/century)
ProMoDec
Type: System..::..Double
Catalog mean J2000 proper motion in declination (arcsec/century)
Parallax
Type: System..::..Double
Catalog mean J2000 parallax (arcsec)
RadVel
Type: System..::..Double
Catalog mean J2000 radial velocity (km/sec)

Remarks

Assumes positions are FK5. If Parallax is set to zero, NOVAS-COM assumes the object is on the "celestial sphere", which has a distance of 10 megaparsecs.
