    Maybe for planets and panorams to add option to download all images, and then just regulary check if there are updates - it will really increase performance.

    this is really some amazing stuff, if i had had that in school i think i would have gotten into astronomy a lot more. but i have to agree with runner, the loading of the pictures generally is too slow. when i take a guided tour and want to see the details i often have to pause and wait up to 30 seconds for the picture to go from pixelated to sharp which really reduces the overall fluidity of the presentation. i know its intended so that people DO pause tours and check out tings that interest them, it should just not be like a requirement to get the normal benefit. i mean looking at galaxies is cool espescially while getting audio information to it, but if the whole visual part is basically reduced to colored squares, whats the point?

    As I understand, the coordinates of the object is RA and Dec. So when you need to say someone where to look - you need to say this two numbers.
