What is it ?
This a project to make a powerful, free and cross-platform astronomy software.
There are two main parts :

- A object-oriented library
Where are the sources ?
The sources are available on sourceforge
CVS is not use at this time because distribution's tree structure isn't stable.
There is a available binary of a in-developement version for win32 at the download section.
And the documents ?
You can find the auto-make documentation of the astronomy library
libastronomia : Generic data source access
The architecture for data access allow use of a lot of different data source, from
Mysql to formatted binary files. Data are available everywhere in the program and
interface for browsing the result is the same for all the data source type.
Astronomia : At least 26 differents projections !
Thanks to wcslib, 26 differents projections are avalaible to draw the skymaps.
From "Plate carrée
" to "Hammer-Aitoff
", you can use zenithal, cylindrical,
pseudocylindrical, conic, pseudoconic, polyconic, quad-cube projections.
