- Stellarium is an open source desktop planetarium for Linux/Unix, Windows and MacOSX. It renders the skies in realtime using OpenGL, which means the skies will look exactly like what you see with your eyes, binoculars, or a small telescope. Stellarium is very simple to use, which is one of its biggest advantages: it can easily be used by beginners.
- Aciqra is an open source virtual planetarium which tracks the locations of planets, the sun and moon along with Earth's shadow and displays the phases of the moon and planets in realtime. The program also includes several widgets which give it added functionality including Epidermidis graphing, planet location lister, an Eclipse finder and a conjunction engine.
- A free 3D space simulator that lets you travel through the solar system and beyond to over 100,000 stars.
- The Desktop Planetarium for KDE. It provides an accurate graphical simulation of the night sky, from any location on Earth, at any date and time. The display includes 130,000 stars, 13,000 deep-sky objects,all 8 planets, the Sun and Moon, and thousands of comets and asteroids.
- Standard Objects for Astronomy
- This website is a collection of links to resources and papers related to the selection of standard objects for astronomical calibration.
- Starchart - Star mapping software
- There is a sky. There are things in the sky. This program draws maps of things in the sky.
- Nova is a free Integrated Observational Environment for astronomers. It combines an Ephemeris functionality with the capability of controlling modern "goto"Telescopes and popular CCD cameras.
- SkyChart is software to draw a map of the night sky for the amateur astronomer from a bunch of stars and nebulae catalogs. It shows the position of the planets, simulates an eclipse, and shows artificial satellites. It can also drive the telescope.
- Linux STVRemote
- Linux code to control the SBIG STV Autoguider CCD camera
- Image Reduction and Analysis Facility
- ASCOM Initiative
- Common object models for scripted and programmable astronomy automation
- Interactive, user-friendly binary star program for lightcurve synthesis, animated views, data fitting and more. Can handle eccentric orbits, surface spots and asynchroneous rotation.
- AstroVirgil is a user friendly Java tool to analyze data from the Chandra X-ray telescope. It reads level 2 event files and displays images, spectrums and light curves and can filter photons based on their sky position, energy level or arrival time.
- PyEphem is a module for performing astronomical computations from the Python scripting language.
- MoonTool is a desktop application that displays the times of the various phases of the Moon and a picture of the current Phase of the Moon.
- Astronomical Image Processing System. This is the classic system used to reduce radio observations.
- Starlink Project
- Starlink provide and coordinate leading edge interactive data reduction and analysis tools for use in research by UK Astronomy, STP and Solar scientists.
- an astronomical simulation and visualization program
- Astronomical Python - Promoting the Development & Use of the Python Programming Language in Astronomical Research
