On the star chart there is a large dotted circle centered on the

middle of the Big Dipper; it's even shown on the Help page for the All

Sky tab. I haven't been able to find any explanation of what it is.

I'm curious as to why it's there and if it has some function I'm

unaware of.



Thanks,

-Joe

Looks like Collinder 285, which is the open cluster that many of the Big

Dipper stars are members of.

Hi Joe,



Place your cursor over the object and left click, a description should

appear at the top of the screen.

Chris and Jack,

Thanks! I was so focused on the technology, it didn't occur to me

that it just might be a simple star cluster. I learned something new

here.



Thanks,

-Joe
