What resources are available for translations (well English equivalents) of Chinese 星官 (constellations) 星名 (stars)?

For example:

宦者

3 星官名。

How -or- where can I find the English equivalent for this constellation?

皇位

2 指星名。

How -or- where can I find the English equivalent for this constellation?

An (extremely comprehensive) star/constellation dictionary would be awesome.

中西星名对照表 on wikipedia has ~1000 star names and is good enough for common astrophiles.

I haven't read the book but it is said 《中西对照·恒星图表1950.0》 has more than 3000 star names, which might be the extremely comprehensive dictionary you're looking for.
