This libraries are used with the following projects: https://sourceforge.net/projects/skychart/ https://sourceforge.net/projects/ccdciel/ https://sourceforge.net/projects/virtualplanet/ https://sourceforge.net/projects/virtualmoon/
Horary astrology is an ancient branch of horoscopic astrology by which an astrologer attempts to answer a question by constructing a horoscope for the time at which the question Answered by the astrologer. Smart software. AstroOpenSource@gmail.com.
AudeLA is a TCL extension aimed at providing amateur astronomers with image processing, telescope controling, ccd camera driving, and various astronomical algorithms.
ORSA is an interactive tool for scientific grade Celestial Mechanics computations. Asteroids, comets, artificial satellites, Solar and extra-Solar planetary systems can be accurately reproduced, simulated, and analyzed.
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.
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.
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).
Model of the Solar System
The Solar Model is real time modeling of solar system. It allows user to navigate in space, to control time counting (speed-up time flow) and estimate movement of space bodies, bind camera to space objects (for example, from Moon on Earth in real time).
PP3 creates celestial charts. It generates resolution independent sky maps of very high graphical quality. They can be used for example as illustrations in books or on web pages. Databases are included but you may use own data if you wish.
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).
Galaxy extraterrestrial life simulation
EtiC is a galaxy simulation software that generates and renders a mock galaxy for rational estimation of the number of extraterrestrial civilizations. Stars and planets are simulated with plausible physical characteristics, based on user-adjustable parameters. An EtiC simulation run consists to generate a galaxy disk physical stars, associate planets to the stars, and for habitable planets, simulate the life stages evolution until extinction. A visual animation of the galaxy and user selection of highlighted star-planet objects is provided, together with statistics (25+ graphs) and estimates of Drake equation factors. The V2_1 provides several new features: planets surface magnetic field, reworked life stage transitions, integration of MW exoplanets catalog, planets view and graphs window optionally on different threads... EtiC is based on OpenGL / GLFW 3.2, runs on MSWindows 7 and MacOsX. Source code in C++, was developped using the Dev-C++ IDE and XCode.
This is an interactive graphical 3D simulation of the orbital mechanics of the planetary motion in the solar system and galaxy. It specifically concentrates on the phenomenon related to the sun, moon and the earth.
An orbit simulation/visualiser tool
Orbit-Vis is a program is designed to take inputs from a user to simulate all aspects of a defined orbit in real-time (with time acceleration options) to show how the orbit evolves numerically, and also to render a live visual display of the orbit. The program allows for up to fifteen orbits to be shown at once, and the user can put objects into any orbit of their choice.
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.
Telescope mirror surface error analysis from interferograms. Includes 3D solid model, color Contour plot, quality metrics, and surface profile.
EXTREMA is an interactive program with publication quality graphics and mathematical analysis capabilities. EXTREMA can be GUI and/or command driven. The command language includes conditional branching, looping and subroutine calling constructs.
