I am a long time ETX user and a long time visitor to your site.

I would like to inform you and your website visitors about a new and
unique software product that maybe of interest and maybe very helpful
for your group of ETX astronomers.   The software is called Eclipse
Timer and it allows the programming of all of the contact times of
eclipses in advance and then it counts down to the contact times with an
audible voice.  It has voices for solar and lunar eclipses, planet
transits, Jovian moon transits and can be used for occultation's.  This
can increase the enjoyment for those just observing eclipses and
occultation's and can be EXTREMELY helpful for people trying to
photograph the event .  Another novel feature is that the software will
remind people to observe for the natural phenomenon that occur during
the initial partial phases of a total solar eclipse before totality.  It
is also helpful in timing long exposure astro photography.

The software runs on handheld devices using Pocket PC 2002 and a
Strong-Arm processor, so it is portable and can easily be transported to
the field.  There is also a Windows laptop/desktop version.

Our website with extensive information about the software is .  Please visit the website and write me a short
note to tell me what your think.  I would value your opinions.

Eclipse Timer is highly recommended by Bill Kramer, a veteran of 9 total
solar eclipses, as useful for eclipse photography.  His website and his
discussion can be seen at .

I would ask that you please consider putting a link to my website on
your website.  It is the only software available designed specifically
for eclipse timing.

Thank you very much and please do not hesitate to contact us if you have
any questions.

Gordon and Angela
