Do you ever wonder if you have looked at a particular star before? How many times have you viewed that star? How many of those times were successful? What was the time of year and the weather for each of those observations? What equipment did you use? What equipment or weather conditions provided the best viewing of that star? StarLog helps you answer all of these questions.
StarLog is designed for amateur and professional astronomers who want to track their observations of the night sky. You define your own equipment and tell StarLog the configuration of equipment you are using (telescope, tripod, mount, DSC, filter, eyepiece) when making observations. StarLog tags each observation with your equipment as well as current weather information. Then it allows you to analyze observations according to equipment and/or weather to determine the best viewing conditions and equipment for particular types of celestial objects.
