Published in Sinclair User #32



ASTRONOMER by CP Software is a comprehensive package to display the planets, stars and constellations and calculate their positions reasonably accurately.

The program contains a series of facilities. You may choose to display the solar system, which will move according to a specified time lapse, or the night sky in general, which is split into five views. Constellations will be drawn in if you wish.

The Star Chart enables you to look at any part of the sky in greater detail, while the calculator gives the positions of planets and minor bodies in Right Ascension and Declination.

The accompanying booklet explains some of the principles behind Astronomy, and gives examples of how the program can be used.

As a means of learning the positions of astronomical features and as a guide to where you will actually find them in the sky, the program should prove effective.
