SkyChart is a software to draw chart of the night sky for the amateur astronomer from a bunch of stars and nebulae catalogs. See main web page for full download. This software is part of a full suite for astronomical observation: https://sourceforge.net/projects/ccdciel/ https://sourceforge.net/projects/indistarter/ https://sourceforge.net/projects/eqmodgui/ Requirement: https://sourceforge.net/projects/libpasastro/ See also: https://sourceforge.net/projects/indi/
Astronomy Observation Planning Software
Sky Observer's Almanac is a tool to assist astronomers in planning an observing session. By defining targets and events that one wishes to observe, it allows the user to schedule these targets in an optimal fashion, and spend more time observing.
SkyNET is a sky chart program for .NET
A sky guide written in C#.
My application is easy to use. First, if you want, use the arrow keys to move through the sky or use the search box (there isn't any multi-language API, so the app and the group names are in English and the star and constellation names in Latin). Then see the stars. Click on a star to see details about it: the name, coordinates, the constellation it belongs to and the best month that you can see that star at midnight.
Slim is a data compression system for scientific data sets, a binary and a library with C linkage. Slim works with integer data from one or more channels in a file, which it can compress more effectively and more rapidly than general tools like gzip.
Program na spracovanie pozorovaní slnečných škvŕn
Program vznikol ako ročníková práca z informatiky na Gymnáziu Jána Adama Raymana v Prešove. Vznikol na základe programu PC – Sun (autor: V. Feik), ktorý slúži na digitalizáciu pozorovaní Slnka na Hvezdárni Františka Pešty v Sezimovom Ústí (ČR). Program Slnečné škvrny slúži na digitalizáciu pozorovaní slnečných škvŕn a fakulových polí. Pozorovania sú následne štatisticky spracované do tabuliek a grafov popisujúcich aktivitu Slnka. Program taktiež umožňuje výpočet fyzikálnych súradníc Slnka, Carringtonovej otočky a juliánskeho dátumu. Program je určený pre astronómov – amatérov aj profesionálnych astronómov. Program rieši komplexne problém pozorovania slnečných škvŕn. Taktiež realizuje kontrolu vstupných dát od užívateľa. Pre správne fungovanie programu je potrebné dať užívateľovi právo zapisovať do priečinku "C:\Program Files\Slnecne skvrny".
This is an application that computes the date and time in formats appropriate for astronomers - julian date, sidereal time, modified julian date, truncated julian date. Extremely accurate, includes correction for apparent sidereal time.
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/

Sparrow is a package for single-dish astronomical data-reduction developed by the National Radio Astronomy Observatory.
Analyze Spectroscopic Data
You can organize and analyze your spectroscopic data.
Specview is a Java GUI_based application for 1-D spectral visualization and analysis of astronomical spectrograms generated by a variety of observatories and instruments. Note that we no longer provide file distributions of this software. You are encouraged to visit the specview web site download page: http://www.stsci.edu/institute/software_hardware/specview/download to retrieve an installer appropriate for your platform.
Supernova search tool
Starblinker allows to easily search for new stars in your astronomical photos. The new star could be: 1) An already known or a new unknown asteroid; 2) An already known or a new unknown comet; 3) An already known or a new unknown galactic nova; 4) If it is superimposed to an external galaxy, an already known or a new unknown supernova; Before reporting a potential new discovery, please make all necessary checks to be sure it is not an already known object or a defect in your image.
A FITS file sorting application.
Welcome to the StarFiles Homepage! This application is designed to sort FITS star image files taken by professional astronomers at observatories. The application sorts the files by their image type: Bias, Dark, Flat, and Object. The Flat and Object images are sorted by filters U, B, V, R, and I. The application allows the user to create and save a profile of a given observatory's FITS header format, for future sorting use. This application also provides a header viewer for FITS image file.
An astronomical Open source Delphi project for : robotic telescope, autoguiding, astrophotography and advanced astronomical image processing. It is developing continuously by author. Some other astronomical test, ideas and source code => See my site for new informations (for amateur and Delphi programmers.) New: STAFImage : image process and blinkcomparator for astrophotographer Some other astronomical test, ideas and source code => See my site for new informations (for amateur and Delphi programers.)
