Angular seperation between two objects / Software?
Posted 21 October 2013 - 02:34 PM
This is a pretty valuable feature I have used for star hopping for ages with some very basic software, which is not usable on windows 7.
I've migrated over to Stellarium, but it doesn't seen to have this feature.
I've seen "Angular Separation "Calculators" online which requires one to insert the coordinates into a "calculator" for this, but I haven't run across something as simple as just clicking on one object, then clicking on another, and the separation shows up on the screen.
Thanks for any information on this.

Sky Safari provides the separation and angle between the last two objects selected.

I tried it on Stellarium tonight and it really works great. I can just click on the Angle Icon in the lower toolbar beside the occular button, or do a Ctrl A to activate it
Thanks again for your help, from both of you.
