Was going to buy Starry Sky but this program just blows it away. Thankyou for your hard work!
Few Messiers missing, magnitudes incorrect, have hacked data a little but overall the programming is first rate.
Can't thank you enough
You seem to have CSS turned off.
Please don't fill out this field.
P.S. By hacked I mean added useful info to program labels like common messier names/distance/magnitude and corrected errors in database info.
Send a patch!! Here : http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=48857&atid=454375
If you make usefull modifications, make other people have it too!
Hi, not a patch but added data to messier catalogue & planets in config file. Can post these if you tell me how. These additions add text about planet distances and common messier names/size(arcminutes)/distance.
Starry Night is good if you want to control telescopes and stuff like that. It's a very comprehensive program, as is Software Bisque's TheSky or, of course, Xephem (for *nix).
But Stellarium is better for a realistic depiction of the sky...the other apps are very powerful but kind of ugly. Stellarium is beautiful but lacks most of the features of those others (HUGE!) apps.
