Looks good! The one thing I don't like is using the greek alphabet to denote a specific star in a constellation. First of all, the game writes it out (i.e. Alpha Serpentis, not α Serpentis). Second of all, such notation is confusing for readers not familiar with the greek alphabet. -[[User:Fadookie|Fadookie]] 06:12, 27 Oct 2004 (CEST)

Greek Alphabet

Looks good! The one thing I don't like is using the greek alphabet to denote a specific star in a constellation. First of all, the game writes it out (i.e. Alpha Serpentis, not α Serpentis). Second of all, such notation is confusing for readers not familiar with the greek alphabet. -Fadookie 06:12, 27 Oct 2004 (CEST)
