Astrology software inspired by the SYMBOLON deck. This software calculates the planet positions and make symbolon card tables according to the calculated constellation. It can draw the classical circular horoscope also.
C API to control NexStar compatible telescopes
This library implements the serial commands supported by the Celestron NexStar hand control (HC) and SkyWatcher/Orion SynScan HC. This applies to the Celestron: NexStar GPS, NexStar GPS-SA, NexStar iSeries, NexStar SE Series, NexStar GT, CPC, SLT, Advanced-VX, Advanced-GT, CGE, CGEM etc. SkyWatcher: EQ5, HEQ5, EQ6 (Pro), AZ-EQ5 GT, AZ-EQ6 GT, EQ8 etc. and the corresponding Orion mounts. Communication to the hand control is 9600 bits/sec, no parity and one stop bit via the RS-232 port on the base of the hand control. Communication can be established over TCP/IP if nexbridge is running on the computer connected to the telescope. To control network based telescopes nexbridge must be used on the remote site. https://sourceforge.net/projects/nexbridge/
a program for astrodynamics, written in C++ include orbit propagator, formation, etc
Open PECTool - manipulate peroidic error data for Celestron mounts.
This is clone of the Celestron PECTool used to upload, download and manipulate PEC data. It is intended to work with Celestron Nexstar mounts like NexStar GPS, NexStar GPS-SA, NexStar iSeries, NexStar SE Series, NexStar GT, Advanced-VX, Advanced-GT and CGE mounts. Communication to the hand control is 9600 bits/sec, no parity and one stop bit via the RS-232 port on the base of the hand control. To build it libnexstar version 0.11 or newer is needed, which can be found here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/libnexstar/ Mac OSX binary is available here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/openpectool/files/prebuilt/openpectool-0.0.1.dmg/download

Command-line tools for astronomy and astrophysics
Command-line tools for astronomy and astrophysics, written in Fortran.
Small Qt/Qwt program to display an analemma diagram of the sun. This is the curve representing the sun's angular height above the horizon. The program shows one curve per full hour (the real analemma) and one for every first day of a month.
Software for instrumenting a Dobsonian telescope
This projects hold software required for instrumenting an alt-az telescope mount. The required hardware is documented here (http://simonbox.info/index.php/astronomy). The software enables real time conversion from (measured) alt-az to ra-dec and manages a connection to Stellarium (http://www.stellarium.org/), which allows you to view where the telescope is pointing in a virtual planetarium.
A C library of published theories of motion of solar system objects.
A C library containing working theories of motion of solar system objects that have been published in the Astronomical Papers prepared for the use of the American Ephemeris. Currently this includes Newcomb's theories "Tables of the Sun", "Tables of Mercury", "Tables of Venus", "Tables of Mars", "Tables of Uranus", and "Tables of Neptune", Hill's theories "Tables of Jupiter" and "Tables of Saturn", as well as the theory known as "The Improved Lunar Ephemeris". Various other theories from selected astronomical journals are also included.

OpenCV driver for INDI
This driver allows to connect OpenCV videoCapture devices (cameras or avi files) as INDI CCD devices. In addition to standard CCD features, it supports streaming with stream rate division, together with a real-time histogram display. It also proposes simultaneous AVI recording at full FPS using available codecs. Record file names may be dynamically generated. It is aimed at planetary imaging in INDI and at testing various OpenCV image algorithms.
Echoes it's a radio spectral analysis software for RTL-SDR devices,
Echoes it's a radio spectral analysis software for RTL-SDR devices, designed for meteor scattering purposes. RTL-SDR are very cheap Software Defined Radios that uses DVB-T TV tuner dongles based on Realtek's RTL2832U chipset. Echoes doesn't demodulate neither decode any human-made signal. Its main goal is to analyze and record the total power of natural signals and generate screenshots and tabular data (CSV, GNUplot) output in presence of particular peaks in a selected narrow range of frequencies. Since there is no demodulation, there is no provision for audio listening, except for a notify sound when an event has been recorded.
Optical Design Software
Optical design application geared to telescopes and other optical systems. Features include layout design, optimization, standard expected output, ability to import ZMX and LNS files
Astrophysical Integrated Research Environment
AIRE (Astrophysical Integrated Research Environment) is a set of computing facilities initiated by Tsinghua Center for Astrophysics , which aims to aid astrophysicists collect, store and analyze data.
Displays the phase of the moon in the system tray.
Displays the phase of the moon in the system tray. Additionally, a window can be displayed that shows user configurable data about the moon (rise/set times, percent illumination, etc).
Atlas EQ-G telescope mount experimental program.
A simple experimental program for operating the Atlas EQ-G telescope mount using Linux. It is for the northern hemisphere.
