Update fixed my settings issue Can't wait to try it out on my telescope.
I used this app for the first time last night. Liked the idea of the app. Issue I was having when I would ask the telescope to move. Times it worked perfect. Other times my 6SE would not move. I would tap the app again and it still would not move or respond. Then the 3rd or 4th time it would move. It would move as much as if I held it down for all 3-4 times. Not sure why the app was not sending the message the telescope the first 2-3 times. If that lag issue can be fixed I think this app would be spot on. Liked how it saved me the steps with the hand controller entering in time and other information.
It will not work right!!! When trying to input the correct time and location settings to use the phone's GPS location and the phone's time it will not accept it and defaults to some five hours off time and 0 latitude 0 longitude coordinates. I'm on the latest version love this app and I have star sense and all of it is completely useless!
Stuck in portrait I have a galaxy note 3 and for the last week or so Skyportal wont recognize orientation anymore. (Tried toggling orientation, restarting phone and uninstalling/reinstalling app) I really like using the program with C11 HD.....
Has been great. Not so good anymore! Latest version does not provide info about local astronomy events. Location selection from map does not work, pretending no internet access is available, and this on all my devices. Finally, telescope control (slt 130), is very erratic, loosing connection, and not allowing to start a connection with a clean slate of alignment stars.
Its ok Took the free download since I have a Celestron telescope. It works okay, but the compass feature is useless. Also, it doesn't seem to track the proper alignment of the stars, so if you're using it to get your bearings, it doesn't work. Overall, it's accurate but leave me lacking
