|Adastra displays a realistic view of the night sky from any place on
Earth or point in time.
The functions of Adastra are a significant subset of the
popular astronomy program Coeli - Stella 2000. You can easily manipulate
your real-time sky display with the center, zoom, unzoom, directional,
and panning functions. A single mouse click on any visible object displays
a report with information about that object. You can also search for stars,
planets, or constellations.
Adastra can smoothly animate solar system objects, and create
printable finder charts.
This updated version includes 1,500 more stars, lets you find
stars by designation (Bayer, Flamsteed, HR, SAO number), includes more
accurate routines for all coordinate conversions, uses fewer system resources,
and includes other enhancements.
