Carina Soft Voyager is a powerful and comprehensive utility which enables you to control a telescope, study the sky and get information about various objects. The program lets you view the sky on your computer screen from any place on the Earth or in the Solar System. By using this tool you will be able to get data about millions of galaxies, clusters, star and nebulae which are visible only through powerful and advanced telescopes.
Voyager offers a set of native controls and dialog boxes which lets you easily access all the program's features and functions. You can also use this tool to control computer-driven telescopes. The application comes with a rich collection of 360-degree horizon panoramas, including a tropical beach in Hawaii, Cathedral Rock in Arizona, or a mirror-still lake in New York. You can also create your own horizon panorama.
Voyager comes with a series of high-res maps of the Moon, Earth and Mars. Moreover, the program contains clear maps of Saturn's moons from the Cassini space probe.
