This page builds a plot that depicts the position of stars and asteroids within a defined region, typically, the field-of-view of a telescope. The star positions are supplied by the USNO-A2.0 catalog and the PPM catalog. The asteroid positions are supplied from the Lowell Observatory asteroid catalog and from some orbits published in the Minor Planet Electronic Circulars.
