Delta Serprentis Found!!
I took me a while (and $1.00), but I finally found a record for Delta Serprentis.

R. A. = 15hr34m48s
Decilination = +10deg32m21s
Color = F0, Blue Main Sequence
Distance = 27 parsecs, 88 lightyears
Might be a Binary system, but I'm having problems understanding the chart at the moment.

For reference, this comes from a book dated 1983.  Should still be accurate, its the Guinness Book of Astronomy, 2nd Edition.

"...The quintessential quality of our age is that of dreams coming true. Just think of it. For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well. But true peace has never been one of the genuine dreams - we have got little further than preaching against war in order to appease our consciences. The truly wishful dreams, the many-minded dreams are now irresistible - they become facts." - 'The Outward Urge' by John Wyndham

"The very essence of tolerance rests on the fact that we have to be intolerant of intolerance. Stretching right back to Kant, through the Frankfurt School and up to today, liberalism means that we can do anything we like as long as we don't hurt others. This means that if we are tolerant of others' intolerance - especially when that intolerance is a call for genocide - then all we are doing is allowing that intolerance to flourish, and allowing the violence that will spring from that intolerance to continue unabated." - Bren Carlill

Too bad you couldn't tell me much else buddy boy.

Anyways, there are only three stars I have yet to find any record of and a bunch I have incomplete records on.

Not Found:

Laramis
Ribos
Ikeya

Incomplete Data:

Dubhe
Gamma Draconis
Episilon Pegasi
Beta Cygni
Alphard
Adhara
Mirfak

The three Greek ones I'll have data on soon, I've just got to look them up.  The rest I'm still looking on.  Any links or info you can provide to the completion of my table would be appretiated.  I'm looking for the info I provided on D.S.  Later.

Well considering I'm at my friends place I've decided to post a bit.

Eishtmo heres a few tips about star naming conventions you might find useful along the way. Bayer designations are all the letters in the Greek alphabet from alpha to zeta, you can also use catalogue numbers such as HD, HR, etc. There is also Flamsteed which the uses the Greek Alphabet but in a different way(eg. 16 Beta Cygni).

I hope this can be some assistance in your quest.

Two things

1. The 3 you have nothing about don't exist under those names. I have a catalougre of over 2 million stars infront of me right now and none of them are in there. It is possible that the GTA renamed them to those names when they found them.

2. I'll get you some info on the others. Give me 20 mins to upload it.
