view it again at any time by double-clicking on the README
Icon in SkyMap's group in Program Manager. Please take the
time to read it. Use the scroll-bar at the right to move
down the text.

SkyMap is Shareware. You may evaluate it for a period of not
more than 30 days. If you find it useful after this period
you must pay for it. Please see the separate registration
form for details of how to register the program. If you do
not intend to register the program after the evaluation
period you must delete it from your hard disk.

There are significant benefits to registering your copy.

Upon registration you will receive:-

A registered copy of the latest version of SkyMap.

A large star database containing over 88,000 stars down
to magnitude 8.5, compared with the 15,925 stars to
magnitude 7 of this evaluation version.

A description database containing classification
information, descriptions, and observing notes for the
objects in the deep sky object database.

Unlimited lifetime support.

Notification of upgrades to the program, and information
about new and complementary products.

Optionally, you may also purchase the complete SAO star
catalog of 259,000 stars to magnitude 9.5 and a collection
of astronomical GIF pictures.

And apart from all that, you get the comfort of knowing
that you are helping to support the Shareware concept, a
distribution system that brings you quality software at
realistic prices.


So what is Shareware?
---------------------

Shareware is copyrighted software which is distributed by
authors through bulletin boards, on-line services, disk
vendors, and by copies being passed among friends. It is
commercial software that you are allowed to try before you
pay for it. This makes shareware the ultimate in money back
guarantees - if you don't like the product, you don't pay
for it!

Shareware is a distribution method, not a type of software.
There is good and bad shareware, just as there is good and
bad retail software. The primary difference between
shareware and retail software is that with shareware you
know if it's good or bad before you pay for it.

You benefit because you get to use the software to determine
whether it meets your needs, before you pay for it. Authors
benefit because they are able to get their products into
your hands without the expenses it takes to launch a
traditional retail software product.

The shareware system and the continued availability of
quality shareware products depend on your willingness to
register and pay for the shareware you use. It is the
registration fees you pay which allow us to support and
continue to develop our products. Please show your support
for shareware by registering those programs you actually
use and by passing them on to others. Shareware is kept
alive by your support!

Thank you for obtaining this evaluation version of SkyMap. The files are
compressed, and the program MUST be installed by running the installation
program. You will probably have received this program as either one or two
ZIP files, either from a friend, a BBS or a disk vendor. To install SkyMap,
you must run the installation program, as follows:

1. Unzip all the files into a TEMPORARY directory on your hard disk.
I will assume here that the directory is "C:\TMP", but any name
may be used.

2. Run Windows.

3. From "Program Manager", click on the "File" menu and select "Run...".

4. Type "C:\TMP\INSTALL" into the "Command line" box, and press OK.
If you used a different directory name, substitute that for C:\TMP.

5. Follow the installation instructions displayed on the screen.

6. When installation is complete you may delete the files from the
temporary directory.
