Free astronomy calculator

Postby chris-ober » Tue Apr 26, 2016 10:09 am

I just came across this app. Completely free and cross platform -- works on Win, OS X, and Linux. It's similar to CCDCalc but uses DSS images from several different catalogs and includes visual results with any telescope/eyepiece combination using either what they have or custom entered.

A handy tool designed to help beginner Astronomers.
The software Astronomy CCD Calculator uses NASA/SkyView survey resource which provides CCD images of the night sky.It helps you plan an observation by letting you play with different instruments resulting various "Fields Of View" so you can see what your camera will capture and choose the
best target for the session.
