Data: The SkyTools Community
is often much more an object in the sky than the data in a
catalog. Objects come alive through magazine articles,
spectacular Hubble images, observing handbooks, web sites, and
the observations made at the telescope by others. SkyTools
users can attach information such as this to any object,
enhancing each. And the best part of this is that this
user data can be shared with others via SkyTools Standard/Pro
Edition shared data (.stx)
sharing your own personal list of of favorite objects, each with
notes, links to the web, DSS images, or even your own images!
notes are text of any length, either written by yourself, or
pasted from some other source.
an unlimited number of images can be attached to an object
in a variety of image formats, from JPEG to FITS. This
includes images that can be
displayed in the chart
links -- an unlimited number of links to web pages for
Entries -- your own observations at the telescope.
Lists -- your custom lists of objects to observe.
Notes, images, web links and log entries can be attached to
an observing list; all these items will be exported along
with the list, providing a neat way to package them together
