    But why would you want an (online) star map, if you're also 
    interested in satellites?
    ObsReduce by Ted Molczan will give you the cooordinates of the stars, 
    but also positions at estimated fractions between stars, or at right 
    angles to star pairs, or appulses in distance/direction, and show the 
    predicted satellite track.
    SkyMap by Rob Matson will do the same, but using graphical 
    instead of numeric estimates, and does not log multiple 
    positions as easily as ObsReduce does.
    There are also other programs that give both cursor readout, 
    star coordinates, and satellite tracks.
