Adastra's varied and powerful functions are a significant subset of the acclaimed astronomy shareware package Stella 2000, offering highly realistic views of the night sky from any place on Earth or point in time.

Adastra presents an intuitive toolbar-driven interface promoting flexible manipulation of its real-time sky display, with efficient centre, zoom, unzoom, directional and panning functions. A single mouse click will bring a comprehensive report on any object visible in the sky at the moment of observation.

Adastra will smoothly animate solar system objects in two modes against a stellar backdrop, create printable finder charts, search for constellations, DSOs, stars, and objects within the Solar System, in either point-source, spotlight, or the new photoplate display styles.

The program's point-and-click Solar Guide will take you on a tour of our Solar System, interactively linking to both Sky and Picture windows. Astrogloss A-Z is a dictionary of over 1000 astronomical terms, integrated tightly with Adastra's Search and display, so when you click on an object in the sky, that object's definition will be brought up in the Dictionary.

There are now over 50 major new features, optimisations, enhancements, and fixes including 3 additional 'planes of reference', complete integration of Microsoft Agent speech technology so that animated characters can guide you through the pronunciation of arcane star names and lore, and even read aloud from Astrogloss and Aspects of Astronomy, realtime Flash and Track mode, Celestial Globe Projection, and much more.
