Deep-Sky Planner 7 was designed originally in 1994 and today is in use around the world. It was intended to help visual observers choose, observe, and record their observations of astronomical objects. As such, it is also quite useful to an imager. Since keeping track of information and exchanging it with others is important, records can be kept and exported to many other applications. The DSP7 observing report is compatible with OpenAstronomyLog, the international standard for exchanging information among observers. Knightware, the people who bring us DSP, helped author that standard.
