Astronomy software is a rapidly expanding industry, and it’s easy to see why.

When you’re in the field exploring the skies, it may be difficult to find what you are looking for. That is why the best astronomers take star charts with them. Ken Press and Sky Spot have developed some of the best finder charts in the industry. Star charts eliminate the frustration of finding a particular celestial object. Never leave home without one!
