I need to create fields for right ascension and declination... these are in the format of Hours:minutes:seconds (with two decimal places) and degrees:arminutes:arcseconds (again with 2 decimal places. And i require that these to be searchable quantities i.e. search for a range in either.... any ideas on what datatype I could use??
