Free software for Moon observation or survey.

This software, realized by Patrick Chevalley and Christian Legrand can visualize the Moon aspect for every date and hour and pilot computerized telescopes on the Moon surface. It permits also to study lunar formations with unique database of more than 8000 entries and a more than 6000 pictures library compiled by Christian Legrand.

It's conceived to be easily usable “in the field” according to an observing session needs, but also to study “at home” the Moon and its relief. It's interfaced with "Sky charts" Patrick Chevalley's freeware. This set is certainly now one of the most complete released.
