 +I'm unaware if this is the correct method and it is only allowed for those who have writing permission in the psql database. --- //​[[jtello@iaa.es|Juan Carlos Tello]] 2014/03/07 11:34//
  
 +If you have a target that you want to change the coordinates (either because the first ones was erroneous or because it is an object like a satellite that requires constant changing and you don't know how to give it the orbital parameters for automatic tracking), then you can access the psql database directly.
 +
 +    $ sudo psql stars
 +
 +    stars=# UPDATE targets
 +     SET tar_ra = 157.246241, ​ tar_dec = 15.760332
 +     WHERE tar_id = 1205;
 +    ​
 +(of course changing the coordinates and target_id as necessary).
 +
 +
 +However it is much easier to do it using JSON using the update_target command:
