One Million Stars!
open 2sky 3.0 is finally here, and there's just three things you need to know:
- It displays a lot more stuff - comets, asteroids, meteor showers, and over a million stars!
- It's even easier to use than version 2.8, which Sky & Telescope praised for simplicity (November, 2004).
- The author, Kevin S. Polk, has generously released 2sky as free open source software in November, 2010.
“ ...a truly wonderful program. 2sky is the best reason to have a Palm!”
