Aladin Lite finding charts

This form allows you to use Aladin Lite to explore a given astronomical target, by specifying either the coordinates, or an object name to be resolved.

Target name:  (Will be resolved on entry by Sesame.)

Dec (decimal degrees or dd:mm:ss, J2000):


For TESS targets, enter the target magnitude (if known) and depth of transit to show stars that could blend in TESS images to mimic the on-source transit:
If the target T magnitude is not provided it will be determined from the TIC if the input source has a TIC number, but the depth field is required for this (optional) feature to work.
