This thread really spiraled out in all sorts of directions!

Anyhow, I have developed both OSS and commercial software.  All I will say
is you don't have to look very far to find utter crap or really good stuff
in both worlds.

Dave Marhous' - What's your objective?  Do you want a library to do your own

If so, it may be worth taking a stab at some of these.  I have a little bit
of experience with all of them, so if you have any questions, fire away!

- If you're interested in writing your own tracking app in C, check out
xephem (OSS)

- If you're interested in doing some tracking-scripting, there's a python
wrapper called PyEphem, it's great and also OSS.  See a brief blog post I
did on it:

- If you're interested in writing your own tracking app in JAVA, check out
JSatTrack (OSS).  Ganos library is very easy to use!  I am using it in an
Android app I am writing.

If you (or anyone else) has questions, feel free to fire them off.  I hope
this helps!
