With the keyword rectascension, one rectascension circle gets tic marks, analogously with declination. The celestial position after `at' denotes the starting point of the labelling, and step is the step skip (in hours or degrees respectively) for the subsequent tic mark labels.

The label should contain one of the following special expressions:

Rectascension in hours.
Declination in degrees.
Rectascension in integer hours (truncated, not rounded).
Rectascension fraction of hour in minutes (truncated, not rounded).
Declination in rounded integer degrees.
