AstroImageBrowser is a flexible and powerful front end to the Sky Survey (DSS)internet repository of astronomical images for Mac OS X 10.4 (or later) and is distributed as shareware.
Images of astronomical objects in any part of the sky can be downloaded, manipulated, overlayed (with a grid, camera/CCD geometries, object and star labels or other pictures), converted, scaled, colorized, annotated, blinked, saved, cached and printed.
AstroImageBrowser is particularly useful as an astrophotography planning tool but can equally well be used to explore or browse astronomical objects.
After you have planned and taken your picture you can use AstroImageBrowser to superimpose it on the DSS image.
People interested in Astronomy should find AstroImageBrowser useful and fun even if they don't have a telescope.
What's new in AstroImageBrowser
This is a maintenance release. The image display engine has been improved. A bug which caused the application to quit when saving to the cache in a thread on Intel machines has been fixed. If you do get a crash at any stage then find the file called AstroImageBrowser.crash.log in the Finder and email it to the developer.
