Quote:Now that I've gotten back into visual astronomy after a long-absence and engaging in some long over-due nostalgia, I'm surprised and somewhat delighted to see MegaStar still in fairly heavy use. ...What is it about Megastar that has given it such staying power, especially since development seems to have ceased since it was sold to Wilmann-Bell?Is it the accurate nebular depictions? I remember that being one of the big deals of the program.

Quote:Speaking of Megastar, there's an update, believe it or not, dated October 2nd on the program's support page.
