1.  Fedora Astronomy brings a complete open source toolchain to both amateur and professional astronomers.  

    The Spin provides the Fedora KDE desktop enhanced with a complete scientific Python environment and the AstrOmatic software for data analysis. KStars was added to provide a full featured astrophotography tool. As KStars uses the INDI library to control equipment, various telescopes, cameras etc. are supported. Summarized, Fedora Astronomy provides a complete set of software, from the observation planning to the final results.
  2.  Astronomy Linux 21.04 This is an open project "Astronomy Linux" for amateurs. Free distributive designed for astronomy amateurs. This image contains different astronomical programs, for example: planetariums, image processing, astro-hardware control, INDI drivers, etc.
  3.   Limovie Ver.0.9.29b (the latest stable version 0.9.29b): Limovie (Light Measurement tool for Occultation observation using VIdeo rEcorder.) is the tool produced for obtaining quantitative data from occultation observation video. It has been used for the observation of asteroidal occultation with small light drop, double star occultation and grazing occultation with no-instantaneous light change. The Limovie program is available as a free software from this site. And some informations about the result of Limovie analysis are shared.  Recommended by Brian Hunter
    OccultWatcher is a Windows program that helps astronomical occultation observers to stay tuned with the incoming events by tracking the asteroidal occultation predictions published and regularly updated in various sources called feeds. OccultWatcher searches the feeds you have subscribed for, for events that match your specified distance, star magnitude, event duration and other filter criterias. It allows you to announce your intentions to observe an event to all other observers around the world and helps the cooridnation in a global scale. At the time of the release of verion 3.2 there are more than 400 registered accounts (of people that announce their observing intentions) and more than 1500 known installations. The account registration and usage as well as the OccultWatcher software are absolutely free.  Recommended by Kim Hay
