Running MPO Canopus on a Mac with Virtual PC
From a Canadian user who attended the Photometry Workshop in Big Bear (May
Just to let you know that the code and programming in your software must be pretty
darned fine as I have been running Canopus Ver 8.0 on my Mac PowerBook using Virtual PC.
It actually runs better than Microsoft's own Street's and Tips program!
Both of them use charting principles and image zooming methods along with heavy
database usage. Canopus blows the doors off Microsoft's program, plus it has never once
hung up on me.
All this while running on a Mac!
If you have any users out there who are wondering if Canopus will run on a Mac you can
tell them as long as they have Virtual PC it will work like a charm. In fact as I was
sitting in the back of the conference room and following along with your examples I could
compare how my Mac/Canopus was running compared to some of the Pentium4 laptops in front
of me. Any of the star matching
and lightcurve generation was handled with ease and I was finished at the same time as any
of the other PC folk around me.
