Collecting stars

I need to collect coordinates of stars on google sky. [url removed, login to view] Google sky is a map of the sky that can be found on the domain above. I only need to collect stars of a certain brightness but to do this manually would take me far to long. When the curser is over a star or object on google sky it shows cordinates in the bottom left corner. I need my end product to be a spreadsheet of stars in excel. There are also 88 constellations which can be seen by clicking constellations. One you have clicked constellations choose one from the 12 below. Once you do this you should see white lines on the screen. there are 88 constellations alltogether which each take up there own part of the screen. I need to collect these stars into 89 seperate excel documents. 1 for each constellation and then one for stars that are not in a constellation.

As you may see on google sky there is a link button so say for example i am zoomed in and have a star central to the screen i can hover over it to get the coordinates from the bottom left hand corner and then click the link to this page and copy the link.

In excel i need both coordinates (right ascension and declination is the proper name for these) to be in seperate columns and then the link to the star in another column. I would also need each star to have its own id from 1 up to ....

Please speak to me if you need more information. I am hoping some sort of software can be written in which it can pick out a certain brightness of stars and cataloge them for me. This may involve firstly splitting up google sky into sections. It may be easier to use another tool instead of google sky. The only thing is i cant find many that also can provide a link. I use google earth sometimes as this has some other functions that are useful.
