Homework Help: Astronomy; Precession data co-ordinate systems

  1. Jun 27, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Use a coordinate conversion application to roughly map out the amount of precession in coordinate
    positions (R.A and Declination) in the sky between 1950 and 2000.

    2. Relevant equations

    I can easily find a converter on the internet

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I am a little flabbergasted at what this question means. Can anyone explain it to me?

    Where would I get this data?
