    Question Looking for a specific type of computer software.



    Is there any computer program or anything that could allow you to search patterns of star for a specific shape, or image outline when you connect them? Really just a constellation finder that can find any pattern of stars is what I'm ideally thinking of.

    Any planetarium software should work, as already mentioned, Stellarium is a good and free choice.

    Some people don't understand why I love astronomy so much! I cannot understand why they don't!

    Stellarium will show patterns but it won't search for them. The closest would be a plate solver, you can present a picture and it will find where it is located. For instance astrotortilla or astrometry.net.
