A very nice conversion to OSX for an application that's been a MacOS staple for years. Has a clean and attractive GUI which makes this planetarium a pleasure to use. Excellent for a "quick" view of planned telescope activity.

Does it calculate the procession of the equinox in reverse like version 1.5.1? The old version had the procession moving into aquarius as you go further back in time, and into aries as you move foreward!
