      Well, this article says it's centered on the globular cluster NGC 6522 and is about a degree wide.

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NGC_6522

      "Constellation Sagittarius
      Right ascension 18h 3m 34.1s
      Declination -30° 2′ 2.3″


      That's 0 Capricorn 56 right now. So I guess you can use 0 Capricorn 26 to 1 Capricorn 26 unless Diana R. or somebody else has come up with coordinates that are more precise.
