    I have used pocket stars....I find it excellent for sight reduction and
    the starfinder/skymap feature is nice also.  Price is great (low) and
    the ability to download and play with a demo version is a tremendous
    selling feature.  Note there are multiple versions of the almanac
    available to download depending on digital memory available.  You need
    to have a Windows CE pocket PC for it to work but if that cost is
    already sunk (you own one) this is the way to go

    Subject: Non-traditional Sight Reduction
    
    More and more navigators are still using their sextants but using
    software
    for sight reduction.
    
    I am interested in user experience with the following software:
    
    - AstroNavPC (NavPac)
    - Navigator
    - StarPilot
    - Celestnav PDA
    - Pocket Stars
    - The Cap'n
    - Nobeltec Admiral and Navigation Suite
    
    I would appreciate comments on user friendliness and features (included
    or
    missing)
    
    Thanks
