<FONT SIZE="2">Has anyone used the <U>Home Planet</U> freeware written by John Walker? I'm looking around for a free digital planetarium/starfinder/orrery for me and my son (age 12). What do you guys recommend?

For free, you can't go wrong. Try it. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif

There are some others that are either free or have free trial versions (and then shareware), such as MyStars (shareware), Carte Du Ceil (free), Skymap (free demo, then commercial product).

Try Bill Arnett's wonderful listing of planetarium software:

For online sky charts for free, try:

Thanks! I've been to Bill's site a bunch of times and never thought to check for a list of software.
