Problem finding objects

I went to the space journeys thread to read about experiences and wanted to check them out my self,
but when I type in the object name, example (1234-1234-1-1234567-123) it doesnt find anything.
I was trying to look at some pulsar neutron stars that others had found.
I am also intereted in planets with very thick atmospheres with tall mountains and deep canyons.

Enter the name properly:
RS 1234-1234-1-1234567-123
Or just copy/paste the name (Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V shortcuts work in the F3 menu).

As far as I know there is not a way to search for specific planet types, other than to just fly around and find them. Though you could use the solar system display (F2) while clicking random stars and check out the planets quickly and easily that way. smile I recommend you have 'real planet brightness' off if you do that, or the planets very close or very far from their stars will be impossible to recognize.

edit:
Also the list of planet types currently are Terras (like Earth), Oceanias (totally water covered), Deserts (Mars/Venus like), Selena (moon/Mercury), Gas Giants (Jupiter/Saturn), Ice Giants (Uranus/Neptune), Titans (like Titan, of course), and Ice worlds. Things like volcanic worlds and carbon planets may come in a future version.

Thanks I am learning to explore and use the F2 key to choose which planet I want to visit, I noticed that F3 works when I want to visit someone elses discovery, but once I entered a code into find object and it came up not found, I checked and rechecked making sure I entered RS or whatever it needed, but like I said it only happened once all the other entries worked.
Thanks again for helping me.
