A planetarium software that shows a 3D simulation of the night sky
Stellarium renders 3D photo-realistic skies in real time with OpenGL. It displays stars, constellations, planets, nebulae and others things like ground, landscape, atmosphere, etc.
Real-time 3D visualization of space
Celestia is an application for real-time 3D visualization of space, with a detailed model of the solar system, over 100,000 stars, more than 10,000 galaxies, and an extension mechanism for adding more objects.
Real time satellite tracking and orbit prediction

Java based astronomical logging software which stores it's data in a free and open XML based format (OpenAstronomyLog).
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.
Astrophoto image & video processor. Full cycle with new technology
Astronomy program for selecting, viewing, aligning and stacking images. Creates 16-bit AVI gray/color video files from images series, concatenates videos together into one video file. The program helps to rebuild sequences of images and restore continuous order of files after they were edited, deleted, renamed or moved. PGMania converts images from one format to another. Supports batch converting operations, also for image sequences. Image formats can be any of well known image formats 8/16/32 bpp b/w/c. The program aligns and fits the pairs of images or image series, with each other or over master, calibrates them in pairs. Program detects stars and get stars statistics. Calculates fwhm, snr and star magnitudes. Image editor with alive histogram, contrast stretching, filters, evaluates and post process. XML and txt logging of all actions and results. *) PGMania uses original algorithm for image calibration. No need for dark & bias files for calibration and fit images.

JAlma is Java Astronomical Almanac.
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).
ProStack - a platform for image processing and analysis
ProStack - a platform for image processing and analysis. It implements various image processing methods as separate modules, that can be joined in a complex image processing scenario by use of a graphical user interface. RPMs are available at https://build.opensuse.org/project/repositories/home:mackoel:compbio
Very simple web-interfase for astrospectrograph
Videoguide allows you to correct star position in case of bad guiding system of telescope. Here is software for videoguide, hardware part consists of PIC-ruled step motors, which tilt a glass plate, correcting by this tilt position of a star or other object. The guiding object is selected by operator in a part of video from gude's CCD-camera. Selected area can be preprocessing by wavelet-filter or median filter and/or histogram equalisation.
The goal of spacesim is simulation of a battles in free space. Unlike other such games, spacesim models management of the ship from the point of view of the captain, instead of the pilot. It allows management of the ship of several players at one time.
