Name        : skychart
Product     : Fedora 19
Version     : 3.8
Release     : 3.fc19
URL         : http://www.ap-i.net/skychart/
Summary     : Planetarium software for the advanced amateur astronomer
Description :
This program enables you to draw sky charts, making use of the data in 16
catalogs of stars and nebulae. In addition the position of planets,
asteroids and comets are shown.

The purpose of this program is to prepare different sky maps for a
particular observation. A large number of parameters help you to choose
specifically or automatically which catalogs to use, the colour and the
dimension of stars and nebulae, the representation of planets, the display
of labels and coordinate grids, the superposition of pictures, the
condition of visibility and more. All these features make this celestial
atlas more complete than a conventional planetarium.
