Astro Planner


Recommended Posts

In anticipation of that beautiful clear sky that is on its way (surely soon),  I have downloaded AstroPlanner (for Mac, it's free, http://astroplanner.net/index.html) this pm and have already planned a good study of Orion. 


My plan was inspired by the comments of Pat (todd8137) from Observing Logs & Plans, :)

http://www.eastmidlandsstargazers.org.uk/topic/2055-observing-logs-and-plans/) and I used the Cambridge Star Atlas and Turn Left at Orion.  

An enjoyable afternoon bring on the clear skies now.

I use an App on iphone of the same name. Is pretty cool as if you put in the focal length f scope and eyepiece it downloads pictures of the objects you select to add to the plan for the evening as they will appear in the eyepiece. Great little app.

Just downloaded this app and looks v useful. Thanks Felix for the info. The version I have on my laptop is quite a detailed piece of software, most of it out of my league, but still very useful and entertaining when the real thing is obliterated by cloud.

You can download and use the full package as an unregistered user.  The only difference is that you are limited to use the Messier catalogue, NGC catalogue and Bright star catalogue, which for my limited abilities is no limit at all. :lol:

Also you are prompted to buy on opening, which I can live with.
