Many years ago our youngest daughter used the International Star Registry to name a star for me. I received a nice certificate and a map showing where the star was located. Its coordinates were given as well as the magnitude. I never could find it with the equipment I owned. Based on the coordinates given in the certificate, it is indicated by the yellow markers somewhere in Pisces in this image from the screen of my desktop software.
In order to give a sense of perspective about where this star is located, I zoomed out from that spot while recording a video of the screen. As the view widens, the Pleiades and then Orion appear at the left. Note the movements of the mouse pointer.
My next step to locate the star with a telescope. I will try with the U of Iowa Gemini telescope in Arizona. It should be able to see it with a long enough exposure.
