Distro Astro is a Linux distribution based on Ubuntu/Linux Mint which aims to cover the requirements of astronomers and astronomy enthusiasts.

The project has announced the release of version 1.0.2 of its distribution, codenamed Ceres.

Distro Astro has features for almost all astronomy uses — from observatories, planetariums – and for all users from professional researchers to astro-photographers and amateur enthusiasts; and that’s why it’s called Linux for Astronomers. The project’s website has a full review of Distro Astro’s features.

Distro Astro’s ISO (size: 1.9 GB) can be downloaded from South Common Observatory in East Sussex.
