Here's a screenshot with star names, grid, and lines from stars to the galactic plane (where the grid is). Also, the mouse cursor points at the Wolf 359 star, bringing up an info box.
This application is written using the wxWindows C++ cross-platform application framework (which you will also need to get to compile Starmap); it can thus be compiled on both Linux/Unix and Windows.
It was based on information from Winchell Chung's 3-D StarMaps site.
