I'm planning on writing a Android program that has the deep sky catalogs that I'm interested in. The catalogs that I'm going to put in it at this point are. Messier, NGC, IC, VDB, Sharpless. LBN, LDN, Caldwell, Barnard, ARP, Abell galaxy clusters, and Abell planetaries. Is there anything worthwhile that I'm missing? Images will be downloadable at the users choice. Is there anything that's missing in android planning programs?
