'Best planetarium app available'

'I use SkySafari Pro exclusively for mount alignment and objective location for my astrophotography projects. Much simpler than
using the Celestron hand controller. Love it!'

'Nice app'

'Well, thank you for the reply to my review! Unfortunately I’ll not be able to search for anything via ra. or dec. since I
don’t have that kind of scope. \n Now I know the way to ask a question and get a response is through a review.'

'Neowise Below Horizon and Above Horizon at the sa

'Bought SkySafari Pro. Loaded it on iPadPro 4th gen and iPhone 11 Pro Max. Asked each install to show me position of Neowise. Each
computer had identical default configurations. However, the iPhone shows it below the horizon while the iPad Pro shows it above
the horizon. What’s up?'

'Great Ap for amateur Astronmers'

'I purchased a Celesteon Nexsyar 8 SE about 4 years ago and loved how well Sky Safari 5 worked with it so I purchased this app.
After the telescope bit the dust and I went through telescope withdrawals I finall broke down and purchased a Celestron CPC 1100
11” scope and this app works beautifully

'My first time'

'Just started gazing and I thought I would give this app a try so far so good but it’s obvious I have a lot to learn with app
alone. Looking forward to the arrival of my telescope trying to get prepared for that day. Yes, I am enjoying what I have done so

'Best You Can Buy'

'I received my doctorate in ‘86, and have catagorized this app as one that I can NOT imagine what I did without it. Granted
that all information contained is open source and available, but not so in such a portable, credible AND provides highly accurate
and VISUAL examples - with current (to the

'The best Astronomy app for the blind'

'This app is fully accessible for the blind. There are other Astronomy apps that blind people use.\nHowever they are not as
accessible as SkySafari 6 Pro is. Unlike the other Astronomy apps this app allows you to study the universe and even allows you to
observe the night sky without sight.'

'great app'

'I happen to be blind and really enjoy skysafari 6 pro. I\'m impressed with the amount of information that the app provides on
various objects in the universe. I like the fact that skysafari 6 pro has an up to date and large database. I highly recommend
this app to anyone who is blind or sighted.'

'Nice app w/ good info but beware of default setting lurking about; how thoughtless of the developers.\n\nThe HR diagram upgrade
ism’t worth it and the stars upgrade is likely only useful to those serious about very deep sky astrophotography.'

'So easy to use and it runs my telescope too!'

'I have been used Sky safari for 3 years . I like the “information” feature for use at public star parties when asked
particular questions about what we are looking at. \n\nI also appreciate how easy it is to find out what is “up
tonight”\n\nI have a Starmaster 14.5” dobsonian driven by

'Amazing app that provides an unparalleled view and dataset for the night sky.\n\nOne gripe is the compass: it doesn’t seem to
auto-calibrate when app starts, and is often off by 30-50 degrees due to drift. I must first run apple’s compass app to
recalibrate, then restart sky safari.\n\nUpdate:

'Poor Support'

'The program is now crashing when AR is selected in IOS 13.3. No direct support from the vendor. You have to create a login for
the Community Forum and submit a report there. Direct Email support would be much better. Also positioning of stats, moon, etc.
is never accurate for me.'
