Great app! I'm still finding out about and exploring the extra features of this version. I find it very useful for planning observing sessions and downloading or creating observing lists. Useful in the field enough to truly replace paper star charts and object data. So many features that I doubt I'll use them all. I don't use it to control my telescope, but all of the features make this version worth much more than I paid for it!
The mobile Android software has no problem linking with celestron WiFi module but I cannot make the telescope crosshair perfectly aligned with the target object although the target object is in the center of my eyepiece view. It is always off by 5-10 degree inclination eventhough I had followed the instruction in the help menu on how to align the crosshair to the target. Need help here. I used 2 Android mobile phones with the same outcome.
I have tried several similar applications and none can compare to the polish or feature-richness here. And, as a bonus, SkySafari includes a database with more information than you will ever need easy to access on any object you can see in the sky. Love it.
None better! This app is the most accurate, thorough, easy to use out there for learnig the night sky. Using this app I was able to locate Saturn with my new manual telescope the first try. I have used it to find other planets, stars, galaxies and constellations. Thank you for having this!
Only had it a couple nights, but so far has all I was looking for. Choose an object, click "center" and you get a live look at the location and live alt/az or az/El numbers. Perfect!
This is a great Astronomy app, I love it, I have learned a lot with this app, it has huge database and so much customization and many useful features which you don't get in any other app. But one thing which is annoying me and which led me to reduce rating from 5 to 4 stars is that it's sky doesn't look real as we see in night sky with our own eyes. And no matter how much you tweak the settings you don't get the real sky that you get in Stellarium app. And most of the time it's difficult to star hop because sky doesn't look Realistic. I tweaking many settings changing labels visibility and magnitude limit but still I don't get that sky that I see in Stellarium. It should also simulate light pollution by which by adjusting light polution I can get best possible real looking sky. Please learn these few things from Stellarium. I use Stellarium app to find my way in night sky instead if this. I really want you to implement this. Otherwise it's a very good app.
1) New Eclipse toolbar button.
2) Object Info: Don't compute rise/set times or conjunctions/oppositions, etc. for Earth, when viewing from Earth.
3) Fixed bug where "T Tauri Object Info would be displayed for the object "t Tauri".
4) Fixed problem where an object marked observed wasn't immediately removed from the highlighted objects on-screen.
5) Fixed some localization issues when running on a device set to some non-English languages.
6) Miscellaneous stability improvements.
