'Cartes du Ciel' is the name of the folder created in you Mac's Applications folder. Buried inside is 'skychart'. Just so you know and aren't wondering where it was installed. 'Cartes du ciel' is French for 'Sky Charts'.

This looks like a ported Linux/UNIX app. Therefore, it has a significantly clunky look to its app folder contents and GUI. But it's legitimate and does some wonderful things once you've figured it out. I haven't dug in very far, so I'll delay a review.
