      This is very useful for archival purposes...or if you need to completely reinstall Pro Plus or Pro Plus 7 but do not happen to have internet access at the time of installation. Thank you for making this available.

      Hi Morteza,

      Please look in your downloads folder.  Run the StarryNightDataPackade.exe file.  It will install.

      Any idea if this is going to be coming to the Mac/OSX platform.  In the field (such as at the Texas Star Party) the lack of internet access made it tough to use the program.

      Hello Keiron,

       

      This is for the planetary and moon map data, but not the star data, correct?

      Correct, Joe!  Stars are streamed.

      OK, thanks.  Yes, unfortunately, the stars database is what I needed.  It was hard to work on some of my observing lists while the image I was trying to comparing it with was fuzzy/pixelated.  The wifi connection out at TSP was non-existent at night, so I really needed to operate offline.

      Hi Joe, 

      From the User Guide:

      The star database in Starry Night is actually a compilation of databases: Starry Night Enthusiast uses the Hipparcos catalog, and the Tycho-2 catalog, and Starry Night Pro and Pro Plus also include the USNO-A2 catalog.

      The Hipparcos and Tycho-2 catalogs come from a European Space Agency project to determine the distance to our nearest stars. The Hipparcos catalog has about 100,000 stars and the Tycho-2 catalog has about two million. Find out more about these catalogs on their of cial web page:

      http://astro.estec.esa.nl/SA-general/Projects/ Hipparcos/hipparcos.html

      Starry Night Pro and Pro Plus use the USNO-A2 star database for dim stars not included in the Hipparcos or Tycho catalogs.

      The entire USNO-A2 star database contains 500 million stars down to magnitude 21! This database is far too large to t on a CD or DVD, so Starry Night allows you to download portions of this database from the Internet. See “Adding Objects 3 (Stars)” on page 130 for more information.

      Dear Keiron Smith,

      I downloaded StarryNightDataPackade.exe and installed it. It downloaded all the data. How should I use the data?

      Hi Morteza,

      I don't understand the question. Please tell me why you installed the offline data. Thanks!
