Hi there, I am trying to make a planetarium program and need the coordinates of all the stars. Does anyone know where I could find these on the interenet? And if you know of any good tutorials for making star maps? Thanks.

There are two open-source programs that you might want to examine:
KStars
Celestia
From Celestia's home page:
Quote:
Celestia is expandable. Celestia comes with a large catalog of stars, planets, moons, asteroids, comets, and spacecraft. If that's not enough, you can download dozens of easy to install add-ons with more objects.
