Sky Chart: Astronomy maps with the positions of the celestial bodies


"Maps of the sky" is a program that will be very useful for the friends of Astronomy, prints celestial maps, informs you about astronomical events, the positions of celestial bodies and gives many other information, the program is translated into Greek and is perhaps the only free program that rivals the capabilities of very good commercial packages. One of the great trump cards of the program is that it can be connected to any telescope that has such capabilities. This program lets you draw sky diagrams using data in 16 star and nebula lists. In addition, the position of planets, asteroids and comets is displayed.

The purpose of this program is to prepare different sky maps for a specific observation. A large number of parameters help you to choose specifically or automatically which directories to use, the color and size of stars and nebulae, the depiction of planets, the display of labels, grids of coordinates, the superposition of images, the state of visibility and but. All of these features make this celestial atlas more complete than a conventional planetarium.
