    Download astronomical software

    I have created a special area for the download of astronomical software : now they are only 1000 but I hope to increase within end month.
    Excuse me but I have not tested all links.

    That is an impressive list. I think BAUT should help you to
    improve it and make it more widely known.

    Most entries do not show what operating system the program
    requires. Some entries apparently go to the program's website,
    while others go directly to the download file. I don't see any
    file sizes for any of them. I have only a dial-up connection at
    present so have not tried to download any of the programs.
    It might also be good to have the date of the most recent
    version or the most recent available info if you link directly
    to the download.

    A few minor glitches in the translation to English could be
    repaired, but I didn't notice any actual problems. It is entirely
    readable and clear.

    thank you for the wonderful list! I know that Starry Nights Pro Plus is not free but it is the best software I tried so far among that and celestia, stellarium and theskyX

    That's an impressive list! A friend recommended Stellarium this afternoon. Can't wait to try it out tonight!

    While it's an impressive list, it's far too large for anyone to know where to begin. Might you put it into a table, including latest rev / rev date, and user rating (1-5)? That would help a lot.

    It is very impressive---my own opinion is that there is much to scroll through---perhaps it might be easier if you could provide internal *links* to navigate to each section of software. But, it is only my opinion.
