I've been using Cartes du Ciel (CdC) aka SkyChart for a while now and found it the most effective planetarium software for doubles. Its WDS catalog is complete and very easy to install. Even thought it contains the most recent WDS compared to the rest of many softwares I've tried so far, the last database generation was done in november 2012.
Because I maintain the StelleDoppie website I already have the entire WDS in my RDBMS; i've programmed an export procedure to generate a file ready to be imported using CatGen, and here we go.
You can download form this URL, and install in CdC using the instructions found in the manual.
I used DSD as source name to distinguish it from the "official" WDS catalog from the CdC website.
It was not extensively tested and something will need to be modified for sure. There are some areas not clear where I need some explanations and advices from the author, but I've not received an answer so far; let's test it and we will see if it works!
Please give me a feedback. Your comments are welcomed.
Let our community grow with the right tools.
P.s.: I usually export a list from StelleDoppie to CdC, and use the file as observing list and selecting "highlight on chart" flag. 100% of doubles found. It is not always true for SkySafari because they used primaries only in version 4 and in version 3 the WDS catalog was even less complete; and to upgrade a catalog in SS you have to install a new version of the entire software. I was tired to ask for WDS upgrades and frustrated. I decided to go freeware and I'll never come back. Closed source software can't catch up with daily WDS updates.
