Polar alignment made simple as can be. If your trying to get a good polar alignment this app will help . Simple to use and works just fine. I have a Ioptron IEQ 45 mount. Ioptron made it somewhat easy to polar align. This app takes their work to the next level and makes it even easier to get it right. All you do is look at the image it gives you for your polar scope. Set your mounts polar scope to look just like it and BAM. You have a really good polar alignment. This is a great simple app that works as intended. Own a equatorial mount ? This apps for you.
Is it just me? Is it just me or is the app missing the display of Polaris hour angle in HHMMSS? Why is it only in degrees / clock face time? I want to set my polar scope to correct HA using my setting circles! Please add this feature or correct me if I'm missing something. I'm new to astronomy so perhaps?
It doesn't work for the Southern Hemisphere Can't select Southern hemisphere. The button does not seem to activate when selected and it keeps showing Polaris. Have tried on HTC and Samsung, same result.
Brilliant App Thanks TechHead brilliant app I use it with my Ioptron Skytracker and it works perfectly takes all the hassle away from Polar alignment. I will recommend this app to my astronomy group. Just one question how come there's no Celestron in the list of options
Si Always superb. Cannot fault it. Out of interest, I have just got a newer reticule in my Skywatcher NEQ6 pro. Any chance of putting that new reticule in the settings box. Thank you!!!
Once I took the time to go through the Tools set-up (use GPS time, etc.), it worked beautifully using the built-in reticle display. I really like having the choice of views (Telescopic, Naked, eye, Diagonal). I was able to verify using SkySafari and TheSkyX. Excellent app.
