Astronomer for Windows

Astronomer for Windows (Expert Software) is similar to Amazing Universe III, but with a bit more material. Again, there are two separate components, Multimedia and Astronomer, for accessing information. The interface is the same old dull Windows format, but it is decently organized, with labeled icons and some hypertext. A major drawback is the inelegant pause each time the screen is redrawn. It’s an ugly moment which you have to endure over and over. The content is quite extensive, with decent text material, video, and graphics. The observatory simulation is the weakest part of this program, which means that Astronomer for Windows has less reason to be on CD-ROM than some of the competition.

– April 1995
