    I fully endorse your view. Skymap makes all other sky programmes redundant.
    It is very powerful and meets all needs. I only wish it was possible to show
    the satellites one by one when in allsat mode. The screen gets filled up so
    fast that it is very difficult to identify individual sattelites.
