====== JPARSEC Sky Atlas ====== ====== JPARSEC Sky Atlas ======
-JPARSEC is very powerful on sky charting, and as a desmostration I created an sky atlas with a layout identical to the well known Sky Atlas 2000, by Wil Tirion, but with slightly less objects to be more friendly for beginners and also to allow to be printed in a more confortable A4 size. Main difference is that the atlas was created for equinox 2013, showing the trajectories of the external planets, the Sun, 2012 DA14, and comet ISON. It requires an update yearly, but I think it is more useful. Another difference is the deep sky textures (and Milky Way!) shown in the dark edition, and the radiants of the meteor showers. It is my first approach on a sky atlas, and obviously some details can still be improved, but the result is great. A description of the atlas is provided [[blog:skyatlas|in my blog]].+JPARSEC is very powerful on sky charting, and as a desmostration I created an sky atlas with a layout identical to the well known Sky Atlas 2000, by Wil Tirion, but with slightly less objects to be more friendly for beginners and also to allow to be printed in a more confortable A4 size.
