Traksat is still the satellite software of my choice after many years. Version 4 still has a few bugs here and there, but none that will cause you to miss a pass. The Analytical Output generates one line records that can sorted easily by time if working with large 2-line element files and is faster than blazes. I can process 1000 elements per minutes with a 486/100Mhz machine. I am presently processing 8000+ element files. I have found "Star Background" screen good enough to spot a sat in real-time mode without printing out star maps ahead of time. That's a big advantage if the sky suddenly clears up.
