I'm just comparing it to software like Stellarium. That's what SE lacks, comparable functionality, for example observing from a point on earth, pointing at a star or an object without zooming in. I'm not a developer, but maybe it's possible to make a script. Just a few more features, and SE would be superior to Stellarium for searching
SE isn't made for that. It's supposed to be used for casual exploration on a universe based off real catalogs - real objects are just a bonus I.E. you're looking into the wrong place if you're wanting a digital observatory like Stellarium.
