"Sanderson - I have dabbled with astronomy for 30 years, star maps, celestial co-ordinates, Patrick moores year book but this app renders them all obsolete. It makes locating stars and planets Childs play!"

"I am amazed! - I love this app! It does exactly as promised. Got a telescope for Christmas and hated not know what I was looking at or where to find what I wanted to look at. This app made stargazing a million times better for me and my kids!"

"I was thrilled when the cross hairs appeared on screen and Guided me to the planet that I had selected from the list. And that was only the free app!I highly recommend this app for anyone who is curious about the stars above. Well worth the purchase I say."

Upgrade - was it?

What happened to the globe with the star chart????

3/5 stars

Pretty good but can't calibrate.

Calibration instructions are confusing. Can't seem to get it to point at the very bright moon. Maybe a one touch calibration while aimed at an obviously well known body like the moon or the like. Wave in a figure 8? While flat, vertical, or while aiming at the object? But it does have promise. Great idea!
