Posted by Michael Morris on October 8, 2005 12:31:55 UTC

A new piece of ephemerides software is here in the form of the first beta release of ‘NightCal’ Astronomical Observing Calendar software.

NightCal is a simple, practical tool for basic observation session planning. It produces a single A4 sheet monthly calendar telling the user when it gets dark, when the Moon rises and sets and what the Moon should look like when it does make an appearance. It also provides data on the elongation of the inferior planets and a quick aide mémoire for planetary conjunctions. The output is designed to be printed so that you can stick it on your notice board at home or work or saved as a graphics file for inclusion in newsletters or publishing on the web.

To find out more and to download your free copy visit http://www.nightcal.co.uk . I hope you find it useful. As this is a first beta release we are especially looking for feedback (good or bad). Please e-mail us to let us know what you think.

PLEASE NOTE THERE IS NO TRADITIONAL HELP FILE WITH THIS FIRST BETA RELEASE. TEXT AND ACROBAT HELP FILES ARE HOWEVER INCLUDED IN THE DOWNLOAD.

Bob and Michael Morris
