Answers:

  1. Why do so many new browser windows open?
    To save you time. Deep-Sky.Org's home page has Java applets and Flash animations running on it. So if you had to re-open the home page each time you wanted to navigate to another part of the website, you would have to wait for them to re-load each time.
  2. Why are there pop-up advertisements?
    Deep-Sky.Org is a not-for-profit website. Therefore it must rely heavily free services, such as Tripod.Com (Whose pop-up adds permeate this site.)
  3. Is the a way to keep the adds from popping up?
    Yes, sort of. If you leave the add open, but in the background, by simply clicking on the Deep-Sky.Org page it won't pop up over the content page and be so much of a nuisance anymore.
  4. Can I use, display, or distribute images and other material found on Deep-Sky.Org?
    All material is copyrighted and can only be used with the expressed permission of the credited owner of the material in question.
  5. Can I re-distribute software downloaded from Deep-Sky.Org?
    Freeware software that is owned by Deep-Sky.Org may be freely distributed following the guidelines set in the freeware license that accompanied the software. However, software produced by sources other than Deep-Sky.Org is subject to their own license agreements. Please read them carefully.
  6. I produce astronomy software, will Deep-Sky.Org distribute it for me?
    Yes, in most cases. Please contact the Webmaster.
  7. How often are screen savers updated?
    It depends on which screen saver it is. Usually the Hubble Heritage Screen Saver is updated quarterly. Other vary in frequency.
