That’s kinda cool looking. I can see myself killing some time playing around with it.

Thanks sean. Smile

Hi Sean! Smile

What a wonderful thing you’ve shared. I am definitely going to use it. I’d also like to share 2 other nice apps I use:-

  1. Celestia 1.6.0 and
  2. Stellarium 0.10.2 Btw both have different functionalities which do not duplicate each other.

Just sharing one learning. I picked these from various choices. At that time I did not have the good fortune to either be a member of http://www.makeuseof.com (a great site) or to have a friend like Sean. Now I have both. What I learnt was many apps in this genre have spyware in them. Taking advice from a friend like you or a good site like what you suggested is a very safe & good way to choose apps in this category.

Thanks Sean Smile

Thanks Sean! But I am going to give this one a wide berth! As a kid, I spent countless hours with my little plastic telescope in the backyard obsessed with astronomy. As an adult who still loves nothing more than spending a night under the stars, this is precisely the sort of thing that will absorb me for a ridiculous amount of time! I felt instantly entranced when I clicked on the link … and then had to force myself to close the page. But it does look ever so appealing …

Back to work, Ozzie … back to work!

Hi-diddly-ho, Ozzie must go … See you round, dotTechies!
