Searching SAS RA and Dec

Use the coordinates you saved from completing My Special Place in the Database, and with the SAS locate a collection of spectra that are available near that location.

  • Go to the SAS Coverage Check
  • Enter the RA and Dec you have chosen for your starting point (separate the RA and Dec with a comma or tab)
  • Click Submit. Results will appear to the right of the box.
  • In the Plate Coverage column, click any plate link to go to the complete list of spectra captured on that plate.
