RE: Deepsky Software

Deepsky Astronomy Software

System Requirements
Deepsky works on any 32 bit Windows operating system including 98/ME/NT/2000/XP/2003. Windows 95 is no longer supported.
64 meg of ram or higher is recommended. The more memory you have, the faster it runs.
The program files in Deepsky require approximately 400 megabytes of hard disk space. This includes the 726,000 object database and star catalogues down to magnitude 15.5. If you have the CD or DVD version of Deepsky, you can also copy the images onto your hard disk to improve performance or you can leave them on the CD/DVD.
Deepsky will run on any processor speed including Pentium and AMD CPU’s.
Deepsky supports ASCOM compatible telescopes for automatic positioning of the telescope and for retrieval of the scope's current position. Click HERE for a list of supported telescopes.
For users with two monitors, Deepsky looks great on a dual monitor display! There's no better combination of having the Deepsky spreadsheet on one monitor and a star chart on the other as you plan your observations.

Available for a price in CD, DVD, Beginner Version CD.

Product Activation is no longer required in Deepsky.

Deepsky FREE is no longer available.
