PRODUCT SCREEN SHOTS

So that you may have a better feel for what our products look like, here are some sample screen shots. Please be aware that these are 1024x768, 256-color (or more) images, so they may appear larger than your screen. In other words:

The following images have not been modified from their original version. They have not been formatted to fit your screen.

Choose the product for which you wish to view screen shots.


TheSky Screen Shots

The following are "thumbnail" images. Click on the title or the image itself to see the image in full size and color.

TheSky v4 for Windows

This is the version of TheSky which is presently shipping.

Horsehead Nebula

This illustrates object isophotes (complex outlines), magnitude labelling, attached images, R.A./Dec. grid and telescope position indicator.
Note the vertical toolbars on either side of the screen, and no status bar.

Wide Field & Splash Screen

This illustrates a wide (235) field of view, Milky Way, constellation outlines and boundaries, R.A./Dec. grid, and the program's splash screen.
Note the horizontal toolbars at top of screen, with status bar at bottom.

Eastern Horizon

This illustrates a view of the Eastern horizon, a custom preference scheme, attached images, Milky Way, constellation outlines and boundaries, R.A./Dec. grid, meridian and ecliptic lines.

Egyptian Pyramids

This illustrates the ability to add auxiliary data (in this case, the pyramids), a view of the Western horizon, a custom preference scheme, Milky Way, constellation outlines, and R.A./Dec. grid.

Night Vision Mode

This illustrates the Night Vision mode, with TelradTM field-of-view indicator and custom preference scheme (available to TheSky owners from our Download section).
Note the horizontal toolbars at the bottom of the screen.

Chart Mode

This illustrates the Chart Mode, in which the display takes on the characteristics of a printed chart. Just as with the normal display, the user has control over the font, line and color of all object types.

Version 5 for Windows

This latest version of TheSky should begin shipping by mid-December, 1998.

Sunset screenshot Daylight Sky Mode

This illustrates the Daylight Sky Mode, which results in the Sky Display's appearance adapting to the Sun's elevation.  Also notice the "photo-realistic" representation of the Moon — no longer just a gray/white circle!

Constellation Art screenshot Constellation Art

This illustrates the Zodiacal Constellation Art forms.  Also note the new Object Information dialog (open to the Multimedia tab sheet here), and the pop-up object identification just beneath the cursor in the upper left-hand quadrant.

3-D Solar System View screenshot 3D Solar System View

This illustrates the greatly improved 3D Solar System View, complete with glaring Sun, optional stellar background, and ability to plot hundreds of comet and minor planet orbits.

 

Version 5 for Macintosh

This—the first Macintosh version of TheSky—is expected to begin shipping about mid-March, 1999.

wpe5.jpg (4419 bytes) Dawn

This illustrates the new Daylight Sky option, which results in the Sky Display adapting to the Sun's elevation.  The view will change from a black nighttime sky, through brightening shades of twilight and disappearing stars, and finally a sky-blue daytime sky.  The sequence reverses at dusk.

This feature is great for determining if an event occurs during local daylight!

wpe8.jpg (4924 bytes) Picturesque Moon

The craters and maria of Earth's Moon are shown for more complete reference.  Users with robotic telescopes can easily slew between points of interest!

wpe9.jpg (4478 bytes) Night Vision Mode

This illustrates the ability to select an all-red display to help preserve your eye's dark-adaptation.  Both the brightness and redness are user-adjustable.
