The spreadsheet Excel can produce scatter graphs. I recently came across the idea of using this facility to produce star maps.

Has anyone actually generated a star map this way?

interesting thought, easier to download one though isn't it? ;-)

Depending on how well you want it customised... I might want to put a new one up on my website every week to show something interesting in the sky for example (don't rush, I won't... far too lazy). Excell might work then, though there are other programs that'll also write starmaps nice and easily.
