PocketSat+ (Palm OS) PocketSat+ (Palm OS) is a full-featured satellite tracking application for PalmOS devices. It is designed to be usable by both experienced satellite trackers as well as novices who are interested in knowing when they can simply look up and see satellites
DSO DSO is a freeware astronomical program for Palm OS devices that should help to plan observations of deep sky objects.
The program allows to search for objects in the NGC/IC database by the object:
TeleCalc TeleCalc calculates various Telescope optical design values, also has a glossary of terms
Navigate Navigate is a Palm OS program for computing the range and bearing between any two points on the Earth's surface OR the end location given a starting location, range and bearing.
It will compute these solutions for either lines of constant bearing (loxodromes or rhumb lines) or the shortest possible path on the Earth (geodesics or great circle routes)
pSatellite PSatellite provides visualization of satellite orbit position on a world map (Mercator projection) from any ground location
Daily Astro Data (Palm OS) Daily Astro Data (Palm OS) - Jim Edwards had an annual ritual. Every year he would read magazine articles about the up-coming Orionids meteor shower. The trouble was, he always seem to read about them after-the-fact! Jim consistently missed one of nature`s finest celestial displays!
Jim is not alone
