Mind in a state of that is more than you can amiagen in your life time
Dreamy Music plays while app is open. Very distracting, can’t figure out how to turn it off. Will delete this app and get another
This is my go to app to set-up my camera on a clock mechanism to do astrophotography. It helps me locate objects to photograph and to check my photos for nebulosity's. The only issue is with stars set visually to maximum magnitude 12 on the app the app only reaches out to 9.6 magnitude and photos taken with a 300mm telephoto on a CANON EOS60D "sees" well beyond that. It is still the best "search" app for photography!
The app is amazing! Best feature is the compass showing you where the stars are exactly in the sky.
Still learning but it is user friendly, I’m enjoying this app
Got a reference from an astronomy group when I accidentally spotted Mars and asked questions for it. Absolutely loved it from the day I installed it. The best part is there’s no annual subscription involved, makes sense as I am gonna use it that frequently. Just one addition that I would like to see is the visibility index, kinda recommendations that can say if a planet is visible to naked eye or needs a telescope.
The app in the store shows the safari plus app for standard. I didn’t know there was a plus edition So I bought the standard thinking I was getting the features I wanted in plus Now I can’t upgrade to plus without buying the whole app again. It’s useless to me in the version I have. Debating weather to just buy plus. But annoyed to do so. I feel I wasted $3
I truly enjoy this app, is easy to use and navigate thru it, thank you I need to update one other you have. Well done Regards
Should have just bought pro. Did 2 minutes later and wasted $3 on this version. Bummer. excited for pro though. Make sure you compare the different versions because these is no path to upgrade. I use my phone a lot when doing public events with my astronomy club and the pro is a much better fit.
