    Have fun!


    Thanks to Searching_ _ _ and PROROOTECT for discovering the software for me.

    I use Stellarium, After setting my location I find it the perfect solution for finding, identifying objects in the sky.

    Marble sounds exciting, I am going to have to download and give it a try.

    I'd forgotten about Stellarium, Thanx for the reminder, and the tutorial. I used it a few years ago and thought it was very good. Didn't know about Marble, a nice find.
