Planetarium is an application that plots star charts and offers some unique, useful features for the beginning star gazer as well as for the professional astronomer.

It calculates the position of the sun, the moon, the planets, up to 9000 stars, hundreds of deep sky objects, comets and asteroids for any time and any geographical position and draws a sky map of any section of the sky with all 88 constellations. Stargazers can use it to help them find or identify objects in a clear night-time sky.

You can calculate twilight times, moon phases, and various astronomical information like coordinates, magnitude, distance, rise and set times of the planets and all the other objects in the sky. You can also use Planetarium as a compass when the sun or moon is visible. Line up the sun symbol in the compass display with the sun in the sky and your Palm shows you where north is.

This update is completely revised and offers many new features. Most apparent is the use of gray scale or colour. Many astronomical calculations added. Controls computerized telescopes. Requires 148kB RAM.

This download is the free trial version of Planetarium. The full version can be purchased directly from the author. See program documentation for details.
