This version is able to compute every relevant astronomical facts for the semi-professional astronomical observer. It compute the position of planets, natural satellites, stars for the time between ancient Egypt and 4000 AC. It has a big database of objects (galaxy, clouds ...) and stars (magnitude 15 and less). It allows to choose date and location of observation, and to print stellar maps.

What works

Installation works

Choice of time and location : everything

Solar system and moon computations work.

Display of the orbits, of moon phases, of 3D orbits of comets OK.

Virtual telescope, hemispheral map work.

What does not

Launching of the application : very very very long !! You have to be very patient if you want to use this application under linux ! But once it's launched, the speed is normal.

Astronomical maps : very slow, and an error appears, but does not crash the program, and the map is displayed without visible problem.

Night vision (the screen becomes red) : doesn't work (I didn't expected it to), or perhaps I didn't wait enough.


What was not tested

Printing mainly, probably others little features.

Additional Comments

I was very happy to find that Coelix works with this new version of Wine, because it didn't with the previous, and it was really a program that I missed since I am on Linux. I hope that it will be useful for someone (and that someone will be able to speed up the launching)
