    "Excellent view; extraordinary number of choices."

    June 22, 2010  |   By papanewp


    Seemingly endless array of choices (projections; magnification; focus). Educational (discover benefits/drawbacks of various projections. Clarity excellent; "real time" = instructive.


    All good; getting better.


    I had a problem initially after a previous update; technical assistance was knowledgeable and friendly in resolving problem. I cannot imagine not having this on my desktop. Having been fortunate enough to actually visited multiple places around the world, I can now "visit" day or night, see the lights (or lack thereof), and imagine the weather patterns playing out.

    I love the moonlight renderings, and can see how various phases look from both the ground and from the sky.

    It is nice to know that I will never have to be without this, for it is quite inexpensive.
