A StarTools license is currently priced at an affordable 65 AUD (~ 45-55 USD, 40-45 EUR, or 35-40 GBP, depending on prevailing ForEx rates). A 20% discount applies for group buys of 5 licenses or more.
Your license is yours to keep forever. It will never expire and entitles you to all updates released within 2 years of the purchase date. You do not need an Internet connection and you are free to install StarTools on as many systems as you like, provided you own those systems and are an individual. If you are any other entity (business, organization, club, etc.), please contact us. Please see the EULA included in the download for further details. We're not a fan of heavy handed DRM systems, complicated activation procedures or "renters" licenses. We trust our users to do the right thing – your license key uniquely identifies you and that's good enough for us.
Please use the FREE trial version before you buy. It offers full functionality, with the exception of being able to save your work. This way you can be sure StarTools performs adequately on your system and suits your needs.
StarTools aims to be as affordable as it is powerful. The StarTools project is about enabling astrophotography for as many people as possible, no matter how limited or advanced their means and equipment - we just try to cover our costs. If the pricing is an issue for you (self supported student, minor, pensioner, veteran, hard times, COVID-19 related income difficulties, etc.), contact us and we'll try to work something out; we understand - we've been there. No need for cracks, keygens, etc.
