After you have used it for a while, and become accustomed to the way the information is set out, you will find it fast and remarkably simple to use. It is, however, essential to understand how the catalogue works. The first point to note is that the objects are listed in order of position (right ascension). This is invaluable for practical observers, but means that the various types of object are not grouped together, since they occur in the catalogue according to where they are in the night sky.

So-called blue stars do not stray far from white: they are bluish at best, not truly blue. Stars toward the other end of the spectrum can be much more colorful, ranging all the way to deep gold. But no bright star, not even a “red giant” such as Betelgeuse or Antares, is actually red. Veritable red stars do exist, but only among the carbon stars, a rare class of pulsating variables none of which is close enough to Earth to be among the brightest stars in our sky. The most deeply colored carbon stars are a glowing-coal copper red (not stoplight red).
