    Default Moon Atlas (Version 1.0.13)?



    I've finally switched completely to Unix and I don't run Microsoft windows at all now. Although this is predominantly a positive thing, particularly for security, I do miss certain programs that mainly only run on Windows. I might be able to coax the Virtual Moon Atlas to run on Ubuntu, but as far as I know there is no macOS equivalent. So I've downloaded Moon Atlas on to my iMac. It isn't freeware but wasn't very expensive either. It seems like an interesting, albeit much simpler, alternative to VMA.



    It shows the terminator and can portray inverted and reversed images.



    Does anyone else run Moon Atlas on macOS? I'm interested in any opinions on it. I think it will be OK for me, otherwise it's back to Rükl lol!

    Well, it accurately predicted Schroter's Valley would be near the terminator tonight.



    I got a butcher's at around 60x and 90x with my 90mm Mak. Looks like Moon Atlas is a keeper.

    OK, not so useful at the moment, but I downloaded Mars Atlas as well!



    Looks good.

    Hello Shorty Barlow,

    it's looking great! How much did you pay?
    Is there some freeware showing the Moon terminator given date and time? I mean for the Windows for dummies.

    As I am running out of the lists of visible faint fuzzy nebulae, I have decided to pay more attention to Moon,

    They were £5.99 each but they're only for macOS AFAIK.

    There's more!

    For Windows the Virtual Moon Atlas runs well. I miss it to be honest, although I haven't totally given up installing it on Ubuntu. I'm sure I'll figure it out. Cartes du Ciel is in the Ubuntu 16.04 LTS repo.
