Excellent piece of software. 5 stars
I use to use SkyGlobe, an old DOS based app because all the Windows based Astronomy apps were clunky or flaky and of limited information but this is just excellent. Agreed it takes a wee bit of experimenting to understand the navigation controls but once you have that figured out it becomes real easy and very useful. A generic horizon background would be useful although you can use the 'Ocean' setting instead and it is excellent with the polar lines and the red lit night vision mode. Try the constellation images from the various cultures around the world. Thanks for an excellent piece of work suitable for both kids learning and the serious amateur astronomer. Note that a good video card and plenty of RAM makes it run much better, it is a processor intensive app. Price: Free
