Astronomy CCD capture software
A CCD capture software intended for the amateur astronomer. It include all the features required to perform digital imaging CCD observation of celestial objects. Using the standard drivers protocol INDI and ASCOM it can connect and control the CCD camera, the focuser, the filter wheel and the telescope mount. This software is part of a full suite for astronomical observation: https://sourceforge.net/projects/skychart/ https://sourceforge.net/projects/indistarter/ https://sourceforge.net/projects/eqmodgui/ Requirement: https://sourceforge.net/projects/libpasastro/ See also: https://sourceforge.net/projects/indi/

OpenUniverse is a fun, fast and free space simulator. It currently focusses on the Solar System and lets you visit all of its planets, major moons and a vast collection of smaller bodies in realtime 3D (using OpenGL).
Iridium flares prediction application
Simulation of star movements with great visualizations of flights through star fields.
Collection of embedded softwares to control a telescope mount.
EQ Track purpose is to provide amateur telescope makers (ATM) with electronic board schematics and embedded software to control their telescope mount via stepping motors. EQ Track comes in different "flavors" : - "Basic" controls the right ascension and declination motors of an equatorial mount. - "Go To" controls the motors of a mount in any orientation (ie. equatorial, altazimuth, alt-alt), to point and track equatorial coordinates.
A simple N-Body simulator.
This project simulates the behavior, dynamics, and motion of a group of celestial objects. Given N point masses in a three-dimensional space, its present positions and velocities, and supposing that the force of attraction experienced between each pair of particles is Newtonian, the project approximately predicts it's positions and velocities at a future moment of time. The project can visualize the simulation, and create a graphic real-time output using FreeGLUT, and also have an option for textual output and archiving. Bugale N-Body Data Editor provides a graphic user interface for creating and editing the settings and body data files of Bugale N-Body Simulator. It can be found here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/bugaledataedit
Astrology software for desktop
Modern, nice software for astrologers. Contains different views of horoscope: classical chart, planets view and plain text. Provides detail information about each element of horoscope. Uses 9 house systems, over 40 aspects for horoscope calculation, tropical and sidereal sign and much more.
PulsarHunter is a java based package for pulsar searching. It operates on a number of standard data formats. This package also includes the JReaper graphical candidate selection tool.

Univerx, a Solar System simulator in OpenGL 3D to show planet's translation and rotation. Includes phisical simulation of orbital movement, textured and lighted planet surfaces and customizable interactive view of the model.
A set of cross-platform tools for connecting via TCP/IP to the VOEvent transient astronomy alert network. Tools include a receiver/broker, a sender/publishing tool, and a VOEvent message checker. Runs on Linux, Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows.
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.
