Resulting RA Dec of object

These are the sky coordinates of the object (e.g., asteroid). These coordinates were the goal of the astrometric calculation. The coordinates are in the system you used for the sky coordinates of your catalog stars (e.g., 2000 coordinates).

There may be many more digits in the decimal value of the seconds of RA or arcseconds of Dec than are warranted by the input values of RA and Dec of the catalog stars, or the uncertainty in the final RA and Dec of the object.
