The_Sky 3.00

Category: Other
Year: 1987
Description:"Graphics Astronomy Program", from the company later renamed "Software Bisque". This is a old version, very limited compared with later editions of this title. After install, one must use ENTER (local circumstancies configuration), SPACEBAR to plot the sky, "A" - arrow (cursor/pointer, no mouse support), "I" -Info on object under pointer, "C" - constellations lines, etc. Just a curiosity to my fellow stargazers/amateur astronomers.
Manufacturer: Computer Assist
