For what it is worth I have created a project on SourceForge
(http://sourceforge.net/projects/messier/) with my Astronomy Program.
It is a basic Observing Planning and Logging Program. It is of course
written in Lazarus (I converted it from Delphi) and got most of the
Algorithyms from "Practical Astronomy with Your Calculator" By Peter
There are two major things I would like to add to it:
1. Using a report generator instead of Printer.Canvas.TextOut Statements.
2. I would like to merge it with Planetarium Program. I could do this
with Cartes Du Ciel 2.76, but not the newer SkyChart and since my
primary audience is going to be Linux Users, I really don't want to use
a Windows App.
