recommended planning software

On the 28th, Mr Letchford posted a question on the binary stars Yahoo!Group. Three questions, actually. He asked what was the normal or standard way of choosing calibration pairs. He asked for a recommendation of free plate-solving software. Finally, he said he was still looking for software for calculating transit/culmination times for stars.

A few people helped him with his first two questions. But no one stepped up on the last query.

I posted a reply.

I referred to planning software apps like AstroPlanner and SkyTools. I shared that I was a big fan of the latter. In fact, I really liked it for double star work.
