so so...  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have used nova for years, it has some bugs that I and others have seen for years.. false antenna stalls, doesnt always park the antennas, the author tends to ignore problems that do not interest him, and as he himself put it some of the updates have been "maybelline" just to make it "look" good... I would rather have it work good.

but all said, its one of the few games in town...

Better than Satscape for me  Time owned: more than 12 months
Nova for windows works fine for me. Yes you have to pay for it, but Satscape is free for obvious reasons-I could never get it to work. On Nova for windows you can automatically download and update Keps by clicking on a single menu item. Tracking is very easy, and you can also easily set up many different views. Wish I could figure out what I did wrong with satscape, but could never get keps in that program.

There is a better one for free  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
Nice program but not free and even not so good in our opinion as satscape. Got it only running in demo-mode, i.e. no saving of sat and screen configuration. Heard about a hacked serial but 1. Illegal; 2. Satscape!
