Help name the newest version of my asteroid/comet/spacecraft tracking software!
I'm almost done porting the first module of my TeleTrak software to Python. Apparently TeleTrak is also the name of some Air Force software that is used to track objects in orbit as well, so to avoid confusion I want to rename the new version.

In fact, I'm splitting TeleTrak up into three separate programs for each of its main features. The first will be a program for tracking objects beyond earth orbit including asteroids, comets and deep space probes and spacecraft. That's what I'm finishing up now and it needs a name before I release it on GitHub.

The second program will be the joystick and video-based tracking module for manual and automatic tracking of fast moving objects such as rockets, UFOs, whatever.

The final program will be dedicated for tracking earth orbiting satellites such as ISS, using their orbital elements and fine tuning using automatic video-based tracking.

The program will support the LX200 classic command set as well as ASCOM drivers for scopes that support the MoveAxis method.

I reserve the right to make the final decision on the name, no matter how popular some troll name might be (Tracker McTracker, Shill-o-matic, etc).

How about "Astrolab".

There is an ancient Indian saying that something lives only as long as the last person who remembers it.

My people have come to trust memory over history. Memory, like fire, is radiant and immutable while history serves only those who seek to control it, those who would douse the flame of memory in order to put out the dangerous fire of truth.

Beware these men for they are dangerous themselves, and unwise. Their false history is written in the blood of those who might remember and of those who seek the truth. - Albert Hosteen
