Software to restore cyclorama (360 deg. panorama) from photos
This application allows visually restore a cyclorama from a set of photos covering 360 degrees in all directions to horizon. It was specially designed to restore panoramas obtained by Apollo missions in 1969-1972 but it can be used to restore any cyclorama from photos got in your tourist trip (for example). The main principle of the program is in projecting photos on a 360x360 sphere and combining it together. If you select a correct field of view (FOV) for photo images, its combination become ideal for distant points. For moon cyclorama it is also possible to check a Sun and Earth positions on the sky and to compare the result with a LOLA data (provided by the the LRO moon satellite).
ASCOM driver for the LittleFoot Elegance Photo (LFEP) telescope controller. Firmware 6.x is fully supported - firmware 5.x is partially supported (all LFEP features are available but configuration is only possible by handbox). Contains drivers for telescope, focuser, camera, filter wheel, roof controller and dew heater which shares a single connection to the controller.
Yet another astrology software. Focused on Primary Directions. Based on Swiss Ephemeris. Still has a lot of things in queue to implement.
C++/CUDA/OpenMP based Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) Solver
DualSPHysics is based on the Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics method and can be downloaded from the official website (www.dual.sphysics.org). The code is developed to study free-surface flow phenomena where Eulerian methods can be difficult to apply, such as waves or impact of dam-breaks on off-shore structures. DualSPHysics is a set of C++, CUDA and Java codes based on the SPHysics FORTRAN project (www.sphysics.org) that are designed to deal with real-life engineering problems and are provided along with pre-compiled binaries and source for Windows/Linux/Unix as well as a number of example test cases.
A software for ATM telescope automation
SoundStepper is a "100% software" telescope controller, for Windows, using audio hardware to control step motors at real time. All it requires to operate are external step motor drives, which can be a commercial "pulse/direction" drive or analog current amplifiers. Documentation: http://soundstepper.sourceforge.net/
Please see AstroTortilla -project instead.
AstroMate is a project for automating repeating astrophotography tasks, such as equatorial mount polar alignment and target centering, by integrating existing tools and especially plate solving to the ASCOM telescope control interface. This project has been replaced by AstroTortilla.
Software to control a remote telescope via a web interface. Includes software needed to operate a motorized dome, telescope, and cameras.This project has been partially funded by a grant from the Northwest Academic Computing Consortium.

Astronomical planetarium SW
SkytechX is free astronomical planetarium for rendering real objects (stars, planets, comets etc.) on the map. Program works with range of years 1 AD and 3000 AD. Main catalogue is Tycho2 with more than 2.5 millions of bright stars. Customized internal catalogue of non-stellar objects has been composed of several sources like NGC, IC, PGC, Messier etc. and contains more than 100,000 of objects. The planetarium allows you to connect your telescope via ASCOM6 platform. You can search for solar or moon eclipses, planet conjunctions and other events in given time range. Supports work with overlayed DSS-FITS images directly on the map.
Command line utility for TL-Dimmer V2
Windows command line utility to manage a "TL-Dimmer V2" flatfield panel controller by Teleskopladen.de Arguments are compatible to aacmd.exe by Alnitak for their Flip-Flat, thus this tool can be used in automation tools like CCD AutoPilot.
