Planetarium on a G4 Powerbook

Hi guys,

In another thread (Problem with vram) I related how I have started using a G4 Powerbook (my first Mac) after my Windows laptop died. It's principal use was to run a planetarium program (Starry Night Pro) to control a Meade telescope, and I planned to use the Powerbook for this too. Unfortunately the Powerbook is first generation and has only 8mb of vram, so won't run any planetarium programs I've tried so far - but one reply to my earlier thread indicated that there are some out there that will run on this machine.

Can anybody tell me which programs I should try?
