WINCHESTER, England, Aug. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Douglas Software announced today the latest version of its Solar and Lunar database for Windows, a vital utility for photographers – or anyone who needs to know the position of the Sun and Moon from any location at any time such as astronomers, lunar gardeners, fishermen, cinematographers and many others. The Sun and Moon Calculator includes a host of unique features such as lunar phase and eclipses and the ability to see the sun and moon as they are currently in the sky for any date between 1900 and 2049. Recent additions are the apogee and perigee of the moon as well as a number of tutorials on photographing the sun and moon. In addition a Google map feature has been added together with a revised help file and the latest World Magnetic Model coefficients for 2014 which are accurate for the years 2015 to 2020.
