1. When you plan to finish development of the program?
Whenever I get the time really. Next week is my last full chance before I start college again, but I still have a lot on. I will start updating it here more I think.

I will look into Fenerit's method :) If I can't seem to work with it, I guess I could translate it. It won't take that long, but would be very tedious.

I will be glad, if you study a Fenerit's method because it becomes simpler to us to work.

wonderful.

And how the
program defines, what language to
show, if them a little?
Language gets out the user at the first start?
Or language is
defined automatically,
how in Celestia?

Both methods, depends on VB declarations; expecially about the news implemented in VB/.NET, that I do not know because I no longer play with VB since the version 5.0 which neither unicode was fully supported and its use was tricky. Maybe issues like these are now solved (moreover, still in VB 6.0)... :wink:

I suggest you to use a list box for the spectral types (like magnitudes).
This will avoid data entry errors.
Few choices for these :
1° Hard in memory program (difficult to update), :(
2° In a file.ini (downloaded with .exe, and easy to update) :)
3° In registry (for expert users) :roll:

Here is a suggestion for the STC part of your program:

Coming back to the idea above. Perhaps it would be a good idea to include a picture of the Hertzsprung-Russell-Diagram into the STC program part. With absolute magnitude on one axis, if you find a free diagram.
So people would have a graphical idea of what AbsMag value range their selected star class has normally and could then select appropiately.

Regards,

Another environment for making this:
Looks like this could be made in html5+javascript.
