Starry Night Complete Space and Astronomy Pack version planetarium program. This program runs about $50 and is the one mentioned in the text.
SkySafari 5 is the most inexpensive planetarium program and will let you complete your for significantly other programs...if you are on a Mac ($29.99 at the App store). Do NOT confuse this with the basic version, which does not have enough features to complete our homework simulations if you chose to do them.
