Can I input a list of object names to search for?

You cannot input a list of object names directly into the Catalog Search Tool. However, you can feed your list (with no header) into the IPAC Table Reformat and Validation Service:

If you click "Apply name resolution/coordinate transformation", the tool will check SIMBAD and NED to determine the coordinates. These will then be output, and can be fed into the Catalog Search Tool.
