    That should be something. I'm a telescope person, I have a Meade 5"
    with a ton of lenses, even an adapter for my Nikons.

    Funny, I just installed last week. This is the BETA version, I'm curious to see what else in store. It makes me want a telescope with GPS even more!
    Thanks for posting

    It's worth the install as long as you have a good graphics card

    I was 10 years old when i got my first scope. I still remember the "awe" in seeing the craters of the moon and the ring around Saturn.

    Figures. You have to run it on a Crapisoft PC.

    I'll now change my trusty Intel iMac into (via Bootcamp) a Windows PC running XP.

    I hate slumming.
