I would say something along the lines of "Google is your friend", but you've probably already tried that. Usually, I just use Stellarium or Starry Night Sky, both of which provide a crapload of info.

Does anybody know where to find information on the Pulsar G359.23-0.82? I don't know much about it, apart from the fact that it is a Pulsar. There's no Wikipedia article on it, and Google isn't giving me a satisyfying result....

I'm getting some good results by just putting in G359.23-0.82, without the "Pulsar" in front. Note: this is normally the sort of thing you'll have to do in Astronomy to find satisfactory results on the DSO's. ;)

Its nickname is "The Mouse", and NASA has a pretty good page on it. There are other resources, like this, or this. I'm fairly certain that there is tons of info out there; you just have to find it.

Can anyone tell me where to find info on CoRoT2A? All I can find is that it fried some planet recently! I'm also having trouble finding Cygnus X-1. it's my first year too, and I've never heard of any of this and it isn't in my books or on the internet.
