Galaxy Explorer in Starry Night

Galaxy Explorer, although a very old program, is still an amazing one.

It should be an expansion module to SN 7 that can be added.

    Thanks, Alex!  And you are correct :))  Deep Space Explorer was merged into Starry Night, and version 7 includes a new and exclusive galactic galaxy database.

    The exclusive Starry Night Extragalactic 3D Database includes over 200,000 galaxies encompassing over 1 billion lights years of space.

    Most of the universe lies beyond the edge of our galaxy. The Milky Way, after all, is but one among billions of other galaxies.

    And just as stars form into clusters within our galaxy, so too do the galaxies form their own groupings.

    In Pro 7 you can simulate our known Universe! And all the galaxies in Starry Night are rendered with an advanced 3D particle graphics engine.

    Its easy to see how the universe is organized - with long filaments of clustered galaxies set against immensely dark stretches of absolute emptiness.

    Do you mean Deep Space Explorer?  If so, at least some of its features I think were merged into SN from v5 onwards.  The spaceship mode for example was, as was the galaxy catalogue.

     

    Back in the day I had SNP 3 (my first version) and got DSE separately, but when I upgraded to SNPP 5, the spaceship mode was included.  

     

    If that (spaceship mode) is what you're after, then you can click the 3 horizontal bar button to the right of the time in SNP7 and it's listed there as an option.  The galaxy catalogue I believe was in DSE was the Zwicky catalogue, which is included with SN 5 or higher.

    Is it the same number of Galaxies as in Galaxy Explorer?

    Time to crank up "Magic Carpet Ride". I got my fishbowl space helmet from the 70's around here somewhere....
