Photopic Sky Survey Alternatives?

Postby galactic_overlord » Tue Oct 12, 2021 11:11 pm

Hi does anybody recall the Photopic Sky Survey site?

I can no longer view it as Flash is being depreciated for my browser or something like that. I have Firefox on Linux and if Linux doesn't automatically offer me updates l'm reluctant to update.

I don't think there was a better online viewer than that site. Not amazingly high res but the zoom was fantastic, distortion minimal, really nicely done, it gave a really good feel of our galaxy's layout side-on and even gave perspective on what we were looking at from an aerial POV i.e. looking down on the galaxy.

So, give us a try, what have you got to lose! Oh, and if you stay, when you reach 50 posts you get access to MORE goodies! What are you waiting for!
