Online star map?
      #5841855 - 05/05/13 03:15 PM

I'm a bit spoilled by Stellarium, from when I had it years ago.

I can't download anything to my current computer. Anyone know of a website that will let me type in my location, the time, etc, and show me what nebulas, clusters, or galaxies are out, and where to locate them (like Stellarium)? I don't care about graphics or controlling a telescope with the program or anything like that.

I googled "star map" and "star chart", but all I could find were constellation maps that don't show deep sky objects, and to me were pretty useless.

Thanks.

Stellarium is still around with a ton of add-on charts you download to it.
Also, Google "Carte du ciel". It's free and has a lot of add on's.

Does not work on a touch screen: panning and pinch zooming does not work.
