PDF lesson 1 and 2 Archaeoastronomy, 2

Stellarium
software planetarium 3D free and open source software that allows you to navigate virtually in the sky as if you were using a pair of binoculars, a telescope, or your naked eyes. It includes a default catalog with more than 600,000 stars, which can be extended to more than 210 million stars with the extra catalogues. Allows you to view even the stars, simulates the eclipses and includes a number of advanced features that make it one of the best programs in the industry. It is available for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.

WinStars
excellent free program that allows you to navigate the solar system in 3D using very good graphics and realistic. Includes a database of 2,500,000 stars, a 10,000 nebulae, galaxies and clusters of stars by providing very detailed information about each object displayed on the screen. Calculates astronomical phenomena visible from an observation point on the Earth, it simulates a wide range of telescopes and provides automatic updates on elements such as asteroids and comets. It is only available for Windows and requires the presence of DirectX 9.0 c on the PC for it to work.

Celestia
astronomical software graphically spectacular that lets you navigate the solar system using a 3D graphics, excellent workmanship. Includes a catalogue of over 100,000 stars and lots of planets, satellites, asteroids, comets, and even space stations. The catalogue can be expanded with add-ons that make it even more rich user experience of the program, which has a user interface and advanced navigation, such as zoom, which allow to “travel” in space in a very convenient and fun on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.

WorldWideTelescope

free program that combines the best images of the Earth and space from telescopes around the world with 3D graphics to allow users to navigate virtually in the space having available detailed images and spectacular. Among its main features is the possibility to create guided tours and share them with others. The programme is only available for Windows operating systems but it has been realized a web-based version based on Microsoft technology Silverlight 4.0 which can be viewed from any browser on Mac OS X.

StarCalc

virtual planetarium professional that illustrates the position of the stars at any time of the day reproducing the point of view of any geographical location on Earth. The images provided by the software can be zoomed, rotated, printed, and saved in the form of screenshots. The program also offers a series of advanced functions through plug-ins and a user interface that can be easily understood and used even by less experienced users. It is compatible with all major Windows versions (including older ones) and requires very few hardware resources.

Virtual Moon Atlas

Virtual Moon Atlas delivers high-quality images of the Moon and provides any kind of information on our satellite: if you are a student or if you simply want to know more about the Moon, Virtual Moon Atlas the hotel is an excellent choice.
To fill your thirst for knowledge, you will be able to zoom in on any part of the Moon, or even access to the detailed maps contained on the web site of the author.

Mars previewer 2

This simple program freeware will be very useful in the course of observations of the martian surface. It will allow you to "see" in real time the appearance of the red planet; perfect software to compare their observations, photos and drawings with the simulation.

Orbiter

This software, which at first glance may be mistaken for a game, is in reality a complex and accurate space simulator, which follows in the footsteps of the old but glorious space simulator of Microsoft. The software is in continuous development, and are available in many add-ons (ships, stations and bases). If you are a fan of space simulators you'll never tire of the orbiter. Strongly recommend it.

Registax

Very good and intuitive program for processing movies astronomical in size .avi, able to deal with shots that contain a large number of frames. It allows the control of the alignment, optimization of the frames, and the final sum, with the possibility of making cuts on the frames based on the quality or the difference of the same. He also works with images .bmp, and .fit and is able to de-interlace the footage. If you are dedicated to the filming of the astronomical we strongly recommend that you use Registax for the work of the sum of the frames, as the software is able to give really excellent results.

Isis

Iris is one of the most popular programs for processing of astronomical images and for the acquisition of the same through direct control of the webcam or device ccd. You can work also with movies .avi (and then processing and extraction of frames). The program boasts many features, impossible to list all of them here. The software is also capable of performing the sum of multiple frames, like Registax, but unlike the latter, the end result is often better, even if the processing procedure is more complicated compared to Registax.

Gigi Web Capture

Very useful video capture software, totally free, and created by an astronomer to the needs of amateur astronomers ! Allows, among other things, the capture of video or frames .bmp to long pose (for webcam (modified), and support for the alignment method, Bigourdan. All of the features and info on the site.

Aberrator

Very good and useful program for the simulator of each type of aberration that affects the optical systems. Fully configurable, so you can simulate the behavior of the tools in our possession. Really a software to try out, download it.

Hallo Northern Sky

This program can control the telescope through the interface, ASCOM, INDI has a large database of updated deep-sky with 30,000 objects and detailed descriptions, a database with millions of stars and hundreds of images Deep Sky Survey. In addition, the program can access to the online version of Deep-Sky Survey, allowing the updating of the database of asteroids and comets, and research in the professional astronomical databases.
