The PP3 program for drawing celestial maps.

PP3 generates celestial charts of high (typo)graphical quality. It uses LaTeX + pstricks for this, so the end formats are EPS and PDF (in contrast to mere bitmaps).

The program automatically avoids labels that overlap, and you can change many parameters. You can place arbitrary text on the map using the flexibility of the LaTeX language.

This manual exists as a multiple HTML (also in ZIP form) and single HTML page and a PDF file.
