In another topic area, Paul points to this resource. Thanks Paul. This is a great resource - I'd not seen it before.

The software list seems much more comprehensive and descriptive than the one posted in the sticky here. It's up to date, too. And in true Web 2.0 style, it allows users to evolve and update the list.

Might I tentatively suggest this gets put into the sticky :?:

Cheers

Paul

Which list? Astrotips? It seems to include free and paid.

I can't find Dance of the Planets anywhere on that site.....and no list of astronomy software is complete without Dance.

Why don't you add it, then? What I like about Astrotips is that it is added to and modified by the community. There are items on there appearing several times a week - I've just not seen that level of detail on any other list.

Cheers

Paul

I wasn't aware that I could add anything to that list !

EDIT: E-mail sent to their feedback address.

Errr... Mogget,

Would that be the same DotP program that caused you loads of aggro trying to get it to run under WindowsXP, doesn't work with ATI graphics cards apparently, and is very slow? :wink:

Ahh, but it runs perfectly on the PC that I am using at the moment, and I didn't have to do anything to get it working. If you are interested in purchasing Dance, then I would recommend the following:-

1. If you have an Nvidia graphics card, then you probably don't have anything to worry about.

2. If you have an ATI graphics card (or that cheap and nasty waste of space called an Intel Extreme), then I suggest that you buy yourself an Nvidia card :wink:

Also, where did you get the (false) idea that it is slow ? I suspect that you may have misunderstood me when I mentioned that I run all of my orbital integrations at a low pace. This has nothing to do with the speed at which the software runs, and everything to do with my requirement for accuracy.

Anyway, don't put people off Dance of the Planets, or you'll be getting a slap :P

Hi there,

I second that! It does deserve to get into the sticky! In fact, it is growing better by the day ;)

It recently got a CMS update and as always it is open to everybody┬┤s contribution.

13 years since it first started there┬┤s still a lot of astronomy software for amateur astronomical observation missing. Please add your favourites.

Best Regards,
Hugo D. Valentim
