I'd quite like to download Blender but there seem to be an awful lot of
"if you have this, do that and if you're using that, do this" type
remarks which mean virtually nothing to me. E.g. "Python" and OSX
10.4.3.

Can you clarify all that, please, so I know what I'm doing?

Thanks,

Mike

Blender is a free open-source application
for creating 3D computer graphics.
It is similar to commercial packages like
Lightwave, Maya, and 3DS Max.

I was attracted to the zero cost, and
have taught myself how to use it to
make spaceships and stuff.

While it is great for 3D graphics, for 3D star maps
it is better to use AstroSynthesis.
