Perseus is an astronomical simulation program for Windows. It's able to
recreate the sky view as you would see it being in any time period and in
any place, in Earth or Space. Perseus can represent a truly realistic sky,
allowing real-time animations. It's based on the most
recent star databases, in order to give you access to an enormous amount
of data, all easily manageable with a few clicks of your mouse.
Perseus has been realized paying attention to every single detail. We
do believe that any other similar program is no match for Perseus,
especially regarding the graphics; Perseus is able to reproduce with
extreme realism the astronomical phenomena, from nebulae to Saturn's
rings. Computation accuracy and precision is truly remarkable: on this
subject, usually Perseus has proved itself equal or better to other similar
Perseus has been packed with many
accessories, whose purpose is to transform your PC in an excellent
support for your observations. It's able to substitute any paper catalogue
or atlas, to help you foresee the sky conditions (clouds apart...) to help
the planning and optimization of your observation sessions.
