This program enables you to draw sky charts, making use of the data in 16 catalogs of stars and nebulae. In addition the position of planets, asteroids and comets are shown.

The purpose of this program is to prepare different sky maps for a particular observation. A large number of parameters help you to choose specifically or automatically which catalogs to use, the colour and the dimension of stars and nebulae, the representation of planets, the display of labels and coordinate grids, the superposition of pictures, the condition of visibility and more. All these features make this celestial atlas more complete than a conventional planetarium.

Launchpad is used for the program translation.
Please install and use the program before to update a translation here to have an idea of in context word meaning.

You can download the uncompiled .po file to test your new translation. Just replace the .po file in skychart/data/language/ directory.
