Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Moon Observer.
LunarPhase Pro is a moon observer's software toolkit designed
to help you learn about the Moon and make your lunar observing sessions
more productive. It produces a calendar of moon phases amongst many
other features. By using the integrated observation planning tools
and the general lunar data presented on screen, you'll be able to
easily plan for an observing session and be productive while observing.
LunarPhase Pro contains a wide range of features, all integrated
together into one low cost solution. No other lunar software package
