Can't use it yet I finally got the app to download, then it immediately said it needed to download another 133mb of data over WiFi. I've been trying for about 7 hrs to download it and it was only to 63% at 11:35 pm. I left then to shoot the Perseids. This ridiculously slow download has rendered this app useless for the purpose for which it was downloaded. I'll amend my rating of I ever get the app to fully load and work on my Android.
Best free planetarium app And it control (points) your telescope too. You can always think of more stuff for an app. But this has a lot more than most free programs.
Excellent The best of the best. Had a little problem with an update, I wrote a letter last night and it was working in a matter of hours. A great way to get your children interested in Astronomy. I'd give it a higher rating. Derek way to go. Thank you.
Update via WiFi won't download on Nexus 6 I wanted to use this app as both a planetarium app and to control my Nextstar telescope, but the mandatory update won't download via WiFi, which is the only option you have. Please fix. (Update) I was finally able to install the app and download the updates - completely via WiFi. I'll give it a go and adjust my rating based on whether it can accurately control my telescope or not.
WIFI REQUIRED!! Really Celestron?? Is WiFi Required to download additional files? Why dont you let us worry about our internet source and you just put the files available for download. I can download any file of any size using my wireless service provider!! If at least you gave us the option if we want to use WiFi or not!
Cant download files It says I need to connect to wifi to download additional files. When I hit download now it says downloading files and stays at 0% I can't even use it to control my telescope. Finally downloaded after 3 days and 20 attempts.
