is an educational astrometry utility for performing calculations based
on a Hertzsprung-Russel (H-R) diagram, such as spectroscopic parallax
for working out the distance to a given star. Unlike many other
solutions that use in-built images for their H-R diagrams, Henry plots
data directly from the European Space Agency's HIPPARCOS catalog,
allowing increased accuracy while also giving students greater room to
experiment by exploring the catalogue themselves.
