Astronomy helper application with times, log entry system, star information.
The AstroLog.NET project provides a software solution for logging, planning, and recording astronomical observations and a set of tools for general astronomical calculations for deep-sky, lunar, and planetary observations on the .NET platform.
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 This project has been replaced by AstroTortilla.
Plone Product for computation of planetary position and astronomical data. It will be released for Plone 2.5 up
The primary objective of the project is the development of a Second Life based application, in which astrophysics phenomena involving the simulation of stars kinematics can be visualized. Developed by NII, Japan.
AstroTortilla is a wrapper around common astrophotography tools intended to automate basic tasks such as polar alignment and goto correction.
Astrology calculation, charting, and analysis
Astrolog is astrology software featuring many types of computation, display, graphics, comparison, and analysis. It supports multiple environments, such as MS Windows and Unix X Windows, with complete C++ source code available. For more information see the Web site: http://www.astrolog.org/astrolog.htm
CometCube - software that used to analyze datacube(FIT format) obtained from radio telescope. This project is using IDL evironment and language.
AstronomicalAlgorithms is a FREE portable ANSI C implementation of some of the algorithms published in Astronomical Algorithms by Jean Meeus (2nd edition, December 1998, Willmann-Bell ISBN 0943396638)
Plan and preview your astronomical shots
A handy tool designed to help beginner Astronomers. The software Astronomy CCD Calculator uses NASA/SkyView survey resource which provides CCD images of the night sky.It helps you plan an observation by letting you play with different instruments resulting various "Fields Of View" so you can see what your camera will capture and choose the best target for the session.
Control Applications for Astronomical CCD Cameras
Application for logging, planning, and searching astronomy observations. Written in Python/Tkinter with support for xmlrpc/SOAP as a secondary goal.
AstroPhp is a library of functions useful for astronomy calculations writen in PHP.
Astronomy computing for educational purpose
For nearly a decade Skype and Telescope Magazine provided small BASIC programs demonstrating astronomy computing for educational and inspirational purpose. This project is an inspiration of those programs, using not only BASIC, but any programming language in which it may be fun using.
AtomicGPSClock is a low cost alternative to keep precise time on your computer. It utilizes any GPS that outputs the NMEA 2.0 protocol via RS-232 to accurately set a computers clock. For standalone, mobile, or network (SNTP) installations.
AudeLA is a TCL extension aimed at providing amateur astronomers with image processing, telescope controling, ccd camera driving, and various astronomical algorithms.
Automated supernova finder is a software package to automatically compare FITS images to a nominated reference image with the aim of finding supernovae or other optical transient phenomena.
The 'BandSystem' spectral analysis system is a rule-based system for the classification of mineral spectra. It consists of a preprocessor, a feature extractor, and a rule-based system to identify minerals from infra-red reflectance spectra.
Bayesian Analysis of Neutron Star Mass and Radius Observations
A Bayesian analysis of neutron star mass and radius observations based on O2scl.
Focuser based on ASCOM platform
It provides an USB connection for the communication with the PC, it uses a stepper motor that provides higher precision, you can set the motor in full step or in microstepp mode (1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8). The focuser include a temperature sensor. This driver has a ToolBox with which you can control manually the focuser (for example you can set the limits).
Software package for the design of Newtonian binocular telescopes
BoPlanets shows planets relatively to an observing planet.
BoPlanets is a virtual planetarium showing the planets relatively to any observing planet. The planets can be viewed in ecliptical-, equatorial- or horizontal view. The times of rise, transit and set of a planet can be determined. Click on the link below to the web site of BoPlanets to see BoPlanets running as an applet.
A bash script that allows Seti @ Home users to queue up and process multiple work units. This means you don't have to connect to the seti servers after every work unit, and only when you want to.
Edit/create settings and data files(.bdf) of Bugale N-Body Simulator.
This project simply provides a convenient graphic user interface to create and edit the data files (simulation settings and body properties) for Bugale N-Body Simulator. You can find the Bugale N-Body Simulator project here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/bugalesimulator/ You must have Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 (or later) installed on your system in order to use this editor: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=21
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
