My favourite is SkyMap Pro.  If you can get a copy of the Demo of Version 9, it doesn't expire, but just gives you a nag screen.  And you can download and update its comet databases etc.  Sadly, later demo versions are expireware.

The other Astronomy program I use regularly is the not-so-pretty Astronomy Lab 2.  It has heaps of really useful reports and planetarium functions for observing celestial events.
