GuideGuide is a full-featured star charting and desktop planetarium program. It generates charts ranging in size from a full hemisphere (180 degrees) down to one arcsecond, showing an extensive variety of celestial objects. Most people use it for making finder charts for use at the telescope, so it provides a lot of features for selecting how a chart should be drawn. For example, observers of variable stars might want all variables and suspected variables shown, but no galaxies and nebulae and asteroids only down to magnitude 13. With Guide, customizing and printing such charts is very easy to do.  2

Occult WatcherThe software informs owners of telescopes of their location to be covered by the shadow of an asteroid of some star other than our sun. I volunteering to stay up that night, and with good seeing conditions, reports on the exact (!) timing of the begin and end of the star's intensity drop are collected. That data gives information on the length of the asteroid, and when combined with additional observations from other locations, in analogy to how scanners take images from passing sheets of paper, it allows for computing the complete shape of the asteroid.  1
