Hi Mitch

If you go to the general settings of the skychart, General Display > General Options > Display Ra-Dec Grid. As for displaying the names of the objects, it is still in the General Display > Display > Put Objects Names.

Let me know if i can assist

tip: if you display a few catalogs, the screen might get saturated. In this case use: Skychart settings > Sorting options and limit the size and magnitude of objects to be displayed.

Great tip - I didn't turn on NCG because there were so many. Now I can and I just limited them to the brightest... (up to 11.5) reveals the primaries.
