Group Description

Group for the Users of Satellite Tracker software for Satellite Observing with Meade, Celestron and Astro-Physics Telescopes.

Let me introduce myself. My name is John Eccles. The original Satellite Tracker Software and Website contents have been sold to me, effective August 20, 2013. It is my intention to continue the development of this software. Let me first say that I commend the efforts of Brent Boshart for the development of Satellite Tracker. I have been very interested in this product since 2005 but never really had the opportunity to get involved with its development. Now that I am retired and see that this Software Product development had come to a standstill I saw an opportunity to take this product to the next level. Thank you Brent for providing me the opportunity to continue the development of this fine product.

Satellite Tracker version 2.4.9d and 2.5.0 has now been replaced by version 2.5.1 which includes TLE download capability restored with retrieval from spacetrack.com. The next version will be 2.5.2 and the modifications to that is TBD.

In the coming months I will remove all Satellite Tracker executables from the files section. If you need these files they will be available directly from the Download section of the website - Heavenscape.com. This will result in one repository for the software. I will keep version 2.4.9d, 2.5.0, and 2.5.1 and any new versions in the coming months free. However, future Version 3.0.0 will reincorporate a new registration process, a whole new GUI with resizable windows and operational updates for which I will provide details at a later date.

I have reactivated the Website called heavenscape.com. I have placed a stripped down version of the original content back up for the time being.

By the way, I am also a ham radio enthusiast whose call-sign is WB2IHB. I see that some members are also hams too.
