pokeball29 proposes " DS Star Chart "application for the Nintendo DS that allows you to map the sky and its stars.
This application will allow you to map the sky using your DS. If you are using a telescope that needs coordinates to find a star, then DS Star Chart will output the coordinates for you with only a touch from the stylus. Or if you are just simply stargazing on a clear night, it will show how the stars should look in real time. This application uses FAT, so make sure you DLDI patch it!
How to use:
-- Boot DSSTARCHART.nds
-- The app will ask you your latitude and longitude... Up raises the number, Down will lower it
-- Press A
-- The app will ask your time zone relative to GMT, if you don't know look it up. Press A.
-- Then it will show the main menu, Touch the touch screen to start.
-- If the stars don't show, press the directional pad a couple times.
-- You may see a red star -- this is your test point, press A, B, X, Y, or touch the screen to move it.
-- Once you moved your test point the TEST--DEC and TEST--RA will be shown on the screen...
This is the DEC and RA coordinates that can be put in an equatorial telescope.
-- The Azimuth and Altitude will be displayed if you just moved your test point.
-- Note: SELECT will not lock the test point!!
