Radio Eyes
The Sky Viewing Program for the Radio Sky

There are dozens of good sky viewing programs for optical enthusiasts, but until now there has been a lack of modern sky viewing software for radio astronomy enthusiasts. Radio Eyes is not just a typical sky viewer that has mappings for radio objects. It is a tool to help you plan and execute your radio observations. An automation enabled edition will be released soon that will provide the ability to control antenna rotators.

Radio Eyes is a special type of sky viewing program. It was written specifically for the user who is interested in radio astronomy. Radio Eyes helps the user visualize emissions from the sky at the radio end of the electromagnetic spectrum. But RE is more than just a visualization program. It contains tools for planning radio astronomical observations. Given an appropriate hardware interface, the advanced version (to be made available soon) will steer radiotelescope antennas and trigger data collection via Radio-SkyPipe at the appropriate times. Background and radio source catalog tools allow the user to display a variety of information sets. HTML pages may be created and shared to showcase various catalog objects.

A free 30-day trial version of Radio Eyes is available for download from Radio-Sky Publishing, at The fully licensed program costs only $39.95 US when downloaded from the Radio Sky website. A CD-ROM of Radio Eyes is also available for $54.95 US.
