Is anyone using Nova for tracking celestials (e.g., Jupiter or Sun ) for 
radio astronomy purposes? I have an LVB Tracker but not sure Nova is 
compatible and SatPC32 doesn't track celestial bodies.

Wayne replies:

The SatPC32 installation includes a program called SuM.exe (Sonne und 
Mond) that tracks the sun and moon.  It doesn't display their visibilty 
"footprint" on a world map, but it displays az/el and steers rotors.
