Seeing Stars on my Mac

What's a good freeware/open source astronomy application for the Mac? I know that one exists but my Google skills haven't been too hot today. What I really want is something that will display a realtime starchart for me with the ability to look up the positions (declination, etc) of each of the stars.

Cloudy Nights has what looks like a useful page on Mac astronomy software.

Celestia .. ???

The problem with Celestia is that while it's a good space simulator, it can't really generate annotated star charts.

I believe the last version of Knoppix I tried included KStars. I don't know if it's possible to run that on a Mac.
