Limitations

It illustrates star positions of any instance of the day observed from any geographic locations on the Earth. The star positions can be viewed and presented as images of hemispherical whole sky or any of the user defined sub-areas. These images can be zoomed at different scales, rotated, screen-captured and printed. Also, StarCalc has many other functions of calculation and showing of sky objects.

This program is based on common "Plugin StarCalc interface to catalogs and object groups", which allows program to add new modules as Plugins. These modules enable the program to use astronomy catalogs support and many others add-ons down the road or directly from other vendors.

StarCalc has a simple interface, most operations are implemented by mouse. The program employees the WYSIWYG technology (What You See Is What You Get), which helps you to print a detailed image of any enlarged area of sky in its finest astronomical details.

"An intuitive tool that leaves the fun IN exploring our sky."

Extremely easy to use, added my own city and a friend's city by lat/long. Easy to switch back and forth. The real-time feature is especially cool. Over so many others, this program makes it freaking easy to begin acquiring some knowledge about the sky, simply because the interface is intuitive, not cumbersome, even to a novice. Several approaches to exploring the sky, loaded with info, and expandable, it invites everyone to look above their heads in the evenings while learning and reveling in the kaleidoscope of stars. A rare combination of qualities in software these days. Software that encourages people to look up, away from their screens and explore? puh-leeze! LOL! thank you, and peace.
