Maitreya isn't bad as free software goes but it has no Atlas and you have to know your Time Zones outside of India etc. With Wikipedia you can get a lot of info on Long and Lat and TZ except maybe in small villages in Asia. Then I suggest using Google Earth to find the Long and Lat. Leery

For those who haven't seen the original email:-

Quote:

Jagannatha Hora 7.6, which will be released in a few
days!

A new feature that I just finished adding is to enable user to define a
custom ayanamsa by *fixing* a star at a particular longitude. Almost
1000 stars are available to be chosen. The star you choose will always
be placed at the longitude you specify!

Instead of fixing Spica at the middle of Chitra, you can now fix Antares
at the start of Jyeshtha or Aldebaran in the middle of Rohini or Psi
Leonis at the beginning of Magha or Lesath at the beginning of Moola and
so on. The possibilities are endless.

If you select the custom star based ayanamsa, a dialog box will display
a list of nearly 1000 stars. They will be arranged in the order of
longitude, from 0Ar00 to 29Pi59. It will show the sidereal longitude and
latitude of the star on 2000 Jan 1 using Lahiri ayanamsa. This will give
you an idea of how off your ayanamsa will be from Lahiri depending on
the longitude you fix and also how away the star is from the ecliptic
(smaller the magnitude of latitude, closer to ecliptic). You can view
the list and choose a star and specify what you want its exact longitude
to be. Then all calculations will be based on that custom star based
ayanamsa!

Apart from stars like Spica (alpha virgonis), Antares (alpha scorpii),
Aldebaran (alpha taurii), Shaula (lambda scorpii) etc, it also includes
some clusters. For example, Galactic Center is included. So is "Great
Attractor" (cluster ACO 3627 near the Galacric Center).

This will enable those who want to experiment with different star based
ayanamsas to do some research.

Thanks Majid,

I have moved back to Macs and Maitreya is very useful as it has a Mac version which gives Traditional Vedic and Western charts.

I run Astrowin(freeware) which now includes Horary Helper in" Virtual Box" and old copy of WINXPP for Tropical Horary.

Virtual Box is a freeware for Mac OS to run windows.

Hu! Om Sri Ganapati Ki Jai!
I run two laptops one an older one with Ubuntu and another very new with Windows 7. I run Maitreya 7 on both. I also run Morinus on both though I can't get Morinus.exe to run under Wine the Windows emulator. Yet I can run the Python code but not compile it (I am not sure how to do this). I have Jhora on both and Zet9 on the Linux (using Wine). I just looked at the latest Kundalee version. Its a bit cluttered for my liking. I also like the latest book by Ben Dykes on Elections. Now if only someone would take all of this new material and do a full delineation of a few charts in the Traditional style so we can all see how to approach both Natal and Predictive Western Astrology <grin>.

Hello,

Just a quick note on Maitreya Dream: using jyotish, position and dasha are unreliable, since the author, Martin Pettau, only use precession, without nutation, while both are needed to get "global ayanamsa" as printed in the ephemeris. Jagannatha Hora doesn't have this problem... In any case, use Astrodientst Atlas, if you don't have an updated ACS Atlas.

Thanks François,

I wasn't aware of the precession difference.
My natal moon position changes by 1 minute- about 8 days in dasa period.

Version 7.02 of Maitreya has been released with service updates.
