Hi there,

I've made a small windows program that enables You to view night time and twilights at Your observation site:

A zip file for the latest installer can be found here:

I hope that You find it useful :)

Several fellow astro friends have tested the program thoroughly, see here at the Danish site: http://astro-forum.d...?TID=11901&PN=1

Can you make a Mac version, or something that runs within a web browser?

It does indeed run without a browser, but unfortunately on Windows.

Even though I have a Mac, I do not have any experience with XCode.

I will gladly supply the Windows C#.NET source code if someone here will implement it on Mac

Hi - a new version is now ready for download. SunGraph 1.0.0.9.

 

This version have a few minor bugs corrected, for instance the previous version was hardcoded to use the year of 2014. Now it is possible to specify the year. To clarify, the year used is shown along with each month.

 

Since I use the graph to plan ahead regarding the twilights and night times, I thought that an indication of the full moons would also be useful, so that have been added:

Clicking anywhere in the graph will bring up a window from where some of the settings used may be changed to fit your needs:

SunGraph can be downloaded from this site:
