Here's a Java star chart program which starts out aimed at one of the most interesting areas of the night sky currently visible at this time of year.
You can show other areas of the sky by editing the coordinates or scale, then hitting return. Click on an object to display more information about that object. The database contains stars down to about magnitude 7 (but it takes quite a while to download all those stars over the net).
