sudah ada yang mencoba stellarium. Software ini termasuk banyak penggunanya karena bersifat gratis dan penampilannya cukup bagus. Sayang, beberapa script nya agak kacau. Hal ini terbukti dari adanya magnitudo objek yang +99. Mana mungkin ada!. Magnitudo maksimum yang bisa diamati sampai saat ini sekitar +29.
