Planets and major satellites in real time, with a powerfull zoom mode to see them like in a telescope. Planet position computation now accurate enough for eclipse or transit simulation. Drawing of the 88 constellations with their names. Textured displaying of more than 70 nebulas (Orion, M31 etc..). Photorealistic Milky Way. Ground, fog, and landscape. Ultra fast realistic atmosphere rendering. Automatic eye adaptation to luminance. Star twinkling. Smooth real time intuitive navigation. Equatorial and altazimutal mode. Fisheye projection mode (e.g for planetarium dome). Grids in Equatorial and Azimuthal coordinates. Time control (real time and accelered time modes). Graphical menu for simple utilisation. Clikable stars, planets and nebulas with information. Ecliptic and celestrial equator lines. Windowed and fullscreen modes.
