About this app

Stellarium Plus - Star Map is a planetarium app that shows exactly what you see when you look up at the stars.

Identify stars, constellations, planets, comets, satellites (such as the ISS), and other deep sky objects in real time in the sky above you in just a few seconds, just by pointing the phone at the sky!

This astronomy application has an easy to use and minimalist user interface, that makes it one of the best astronomical applications for adults and children who want to explore the night sky.

This Plus version will also satisfy the most demanding astronomy enthusiasts thanks to its massive collection of sky objects (up to magnitude 22 versus magnitude 10 in the standard version) and advanced observing features for controlling telescopes or preparing observing sessions.

Stellarium Plus features:

★ View an accurate night sky simulation of stars and planets for any date, time and location.

★ Dive in a collection of many stars, nebulas, galaxies, star clusters and other deep sky objects.

★ Discover how people living in other regions of the planet see the stars by selecting the shapes and illustrations of the constellations for many sky cultures.

★ Track artificial satellites, including the International Space Station.

★ Simulate landscape and atmosphere with realistic sunrise, sunset and atmosphere refraction.

★ Discover 3D rendering of the major solar system planets and their satellites.

★ Observe the sky in night mode (red) to preserve your eyes adaptation to darkness.

★ Reach the limit of knowledge by diving in a massive collection of stars, nebulas, galaxies, star clusters and other deep sky objects:
  • All known stars: Gaia DR2 catalog of over 1.69 billion stars
  • All known planets, natural satellites and comets, and many other minor solar system objects (10k asteroids)
  • Most known deep sky objects: a combined catalog of over 2 million nebulas and galaxies

★ Zoom almost without limits on high resolution images of deep sky objects or planetary surfaces.

★ Observe in the field, even without internet connection, with a "reduced" set of data: 2 million stars, 2 million Deep Sky Objects, 10k asteroids.

★ Control your telescope through Bluetooth or WIFI: drive any GOTO telescope compatible with NexStar, SynScan or LX200 protocols.

★ Prepare your observing sessions using the advanced observation tools, to predict a celestial object observability and transit times.

Stellarium Plus - Star Map is made by the original creator of Stellarium, the well known open source planetarium and one of the best astronomy applications on Desktop PC.

Very good app but Very difficult to use on a phone, at night, in the dark. Hard to describe in detail (would need about half an hour and a lot of screenshots with text added), but if you've used it extensively as an active amateur astronomer, you know what I mean. I hope it is continuously improved, because I like it a lot. It also doesn't have Thousands of deep sky objects that should be here, considering the very deep level of coverage that Is there now and what is typically shown on atlases.

This is a great app for anyone interested in learning about astronomy. As some others have pointed out, I've had a little trouble with calibration, but it does work eventually. I also had the problem of the phone screen not tracking anymore when changing menu settings until it is pointed straight up, which isn't a big deal just annoying. I know quite a bit about astronomy but not much about constellations. This helped me learn much more about them. Great app and worth buying to support.

Feature rich. This app is incredible. Whether you're just a star gazer or an astro photographer, this app will help you plan how you pursue your hobby or obsession. The night vision mode is a really nice plus for using it out in the field. I do wish the developer would change one thing. In order to exit the app, you have to turn off full screen mode to display the screen control options, which causes subsequent problems upon restarting the app. They should just have an exit option in the menu.
