Astrophotography planning software

Hi all,

Hope someone here can help. I recently came a across a piece of software that helps the astrophotographer plan an imaging session. Of course I can't remember what it's called so was hoping the astro-community could help.

The software has the following functionality;
Based on location, equipment & target selected, the software would suggest the best time of night to shoot the target and a suggested exposure time. It would also show you how long you could image for & the times between which you could image.

I know this vague but was hoping this would trigger something.
