There is a set of books that all amature astronomers should have in their collections that will have that information and almost anything else that you might want to know, they are some of my favorite and I refer to them often: "Burnhams Celestral Handbook", there are three volumes and they are sometimes the hook to try to get you to join the astromomy book clubs that are in Astromomy and Sky and Telescope mags. Some of the data is dated now but most is timeless. I strongly recommend them. Clear skies. : What I need is a large list of stars with generic names and they're stellar coordinates. I have scoured the internet and no one has been able to help me. If you know where to find such a list please email me.
