very realistic atmosphere, sunrise and sunset
the planets and their satellites

interface

a powerful zoom
time control
multilingual interface
fisheye projection for planetarium domes
spheric mirror projection for your own low-cost dome
all new graphical interface and extensive keyboard control
telescope control

visualisation

equatorial and azimuthal grids
star twinkling
