I am impressed with theskyx student edition for Mac as I have observed on the Bisque website, the ability to simulate the stars and get information about them looks great.
However I would like to be able to plug in a small telescope into my computer (is there such a thing?)
and have the software automatically identify stars and provide information about their anticipated trajectory, and other information. What software would you recommend for this and what hardware is required
(For Mac or PC) and who manufactures it?
Software like theskyx student edition for Mac to use live telescope data?
How are you doing?
Hope all is well with you. I can tell you are a fan of apple products, but lets face it, who does not like apple. They give us quality and unique products that make you feel important and in control.
There are a variety of planetarium applications that you can download on your Mac system.
I have not heard or seen any that uses live telescope data.
Celestia is one such application. It is a real-time space simulation that lets you experience our universe in three dimensions. It's exponential zoom feature lets you explore space across a wide range of scales and is downloadable for free.
You can download it on this site http://www.shatters.net/celestia/download.html
