Observing Projects

use observing projects to organize long-term projects

show object data, date of last observation, perceptibility (Contrast Above Threshold), best observation time (including altitude and azimuth), next chance for observation (if object is invisible at the chosen time)

find all objects you can observe with your telescope at a given time and site in the twinkling of an eye

export objects from your project:

  • insert into MS Excel via the clipboard
  • export as QuickCatalog for Skymap Pro
  • export as private object list for Guide 8
  • export for Astromist 2.5 (Palm OS, Windows Mobile)
  • export to XML and user-defined formats
  • export to HTML (available information: all object data, object notes, images, neighborhood objects, information on perception, including recommended eyepiece and simulated view)

add the objects of your project (complete or as selected by you) to an observing plan or a star map

control a telescope via ASCOM with only two mouse clicks

find an optimized sequence for minimal GOTO slewing distances

find object information, perceptibility opportunities, visibility, notes, log files, images, and get a star map with only two mouse clicks
