Hi, is there an offline (Excel) version of the very useful sky background calculator tool?

Thanks

Hi,

There isn't an Excel version of it, but you should be able to save the webpage to disk from your web browser and then use the saved webpage while off-line, or even copy it to another computer. If you do copy the save webpage to another computer or another location be aware that there will be a saved '.htm' file and also folder with a similar name that contains all the other resources needed for the webpage to run properly – make sure to copy both.

Cheers, Robin
