Quote:Lunar Observer's Toolkit is a computer program designed to aid lunar observers at all levels to plan, make, and record their observations. This popular program was first written in 1985 for the Commodore 64 and ported to DOS around 1990. Those familiar with the old DOS version will find most of the same tools in this new Windows version, plus many new ones. A complete list of these tools include Dome Table View and Maintenance, Dome Observation Scheduling, Archiving Your Dome Observations, Lunar Feature Table View and Maintenance, Schedule General Lunar Observations, Lunar Heights and Depths, Solar Altitude and Azimuth, Lunar Ephemeris, Lunar Longitude and Latitude to Xi and Eta, Lunar Xi and Eta to Longitude and Latitude, Lunar Atlas Referencing, JALPO and Selenology Bibliography, Minimum System Requirements, Lunar and Planetary Links, and Lunar Observer's ToolKit Help and Library. Some of the program's options include predicting when a lunar feature will be illuminated in a certain way, what features from a collection of features will be under a given range of illumination, physical ephemeris information, mountain height computation,coordinate conversion, and browsing of the software's included database of over 6,000 lunar features.From "The Strolling Astronomer", Volume 50, Number 4, Autumn, 2008, the newsletter of the Association of Lunar and Planetary Observers.

Quote:I would be interested in hearing what you find out from Harry as I still have the "older" version....
Quote:There have been no changes made to ToolKit since your last copy. Demand for the product has been essentially non-existent, and this has what has always driven change in the past.
Quote:I still use v1.1.19Was there any significant issues addressed in 1.1.25 or was it minor stuff? Any way to get the 1.1.25 update or am I out of luck?Rob
