Microsoft’s WorldWide Telescope is out… I’m going to install it soon and compare it to Google’s “Sky” and Starry Night — if you’ve already done so, post up in the comments!

  1. Have you thought about comparing it to the open source project Celestia? It’s a VERY nice app for exploring our universe.

  2. I just downloaded it, and while I’m not impressed with the sky view (it appears to be a slightly glorified Google Sky), the Community feature is nice (allows you to join astronomical societies/magazines and share photos), and it connects to and control telescopes using a project called ASCOM. Unfortunately the huge leap in bandwidth requirements after the release of WWT forced them to disable downloads. Anyway, it’s pretty sweet.
