Skytools 4 integrate with Voyager?
#2
Hello,

First a bit of a rant: one of the original planetarium apps is called Voyager, and it is still available from Carina software. It's been around for something like 25 years. So this was a very poor choice of name. Like StarTools... why on earth did they do that? I get people confusing our products all the time. I came up with SkyTools in 1998. Who are they to come along decades later and use such a similar name? I know nothing about international trademark law, but if I were Carina Software I'd be looking for a lawyer. "I've never heard of it before" is not an excuse. A professional software developer selling software globally looks into these things properly before settling on a name. Ok, rant over. To the question at hand.

A lot of new software is available that competes with SGP, and a lot of people seem to be moving away from it. "Voyager" is something I will look at, but my concern is that new control software is coming out faster than I can add it... I am going to have to weigh the number of people using each to determine which ones to support and that seems to be a moving target right now.

Unfortunately there is so little concrete information on their web site that I have no idea if this is something I can support or not. Maybe I missed a link somewhere, but they never actually say what it does, what it requires in terms of other software, and how it actually works.
Clear skies,
Greg
