Any target list can be plotted as a finding chart. However, often you will want to select and plot stars from one of the large, general-purpose astrometric catalogues. Depending on the details of your work you might either want to simply plot these stars in isolation or to use them as `background' objects in a plot which also includes your more specialised programme objects. Various general-purpose astrometric catalogues which are suitable for plotting finding charts are available to CURSA, either by issuing a remote query via the Internet or by obtaining a local copy of the catalogue.
