We live in a computerized world and astronomy software has come a long way since its beginning.  We can now use our computers for wonderful applications such as planning and logging observing sessions, astronomy calculations, and even remotely controlling our telescopes via the computer console.  With a few easy clicks we can simulate the night sky for any year and any time of day for any location.  Here you'll find tutorials, programs for computerized telescope control, image processing and programs to help you explore the universe with a push of a button.

The ultimate in educational fun, planisphere software programs can take you on breath taking, full color tours of the known universe.  Packed with stunning images and video features, these programs often include telescope control abilities as well.  Imagine watching as your computer zooms past planets as your telescope goes from object to object.  You can land on the moon!  Explore the lunar surface, calculate what feature will be visible when, and learn more about our satellite than you ever dreamed possible.  


Through instructional astronomy software, you can learn at your own pace about how to use your telescope or to begin in astronomy imaging. With lessons like these, you'll soon be the one giving observing and imaging advice at the next star party. 


Image processing software is a major part of astrophotography.  The most beautiful images are taken in a series of long exposures and these exposures can't be stacked to bring out all of those wonderful details, without the right software.  OPT carries a variety of programs to fit your imaging needs.
