'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!'
'I updated the app and now it will not go into \n[AR] in compass mode does nothing. So now I’m using SkyPortal to view the sky
in [AR] mode. \nHopefully they will fix this new issue they created with another update very soon. The program is fantastic

'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.'

'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
'Everything at your fingertips.'
'Keeping up with the latest. Information when you need it. Identifying sky objects. Great.'
'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
'First rate support and creativity'
'I have been a beta tester for Simulation for two years now. The leadership of the company is fully engaged with its customer
base. They really care.'
'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.'
'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.'
'This is the best, most important app that I use.'
'I’ve used this on my Android tablet, and now with my iPad Air, with great results for each. I recommend it to anyone who
observes the sky and follows stellar and planetary events.'
'Celestron starsense auto align now works perfectly. Focus motor control is awesome to hand in phone. This app is fantastic.'
'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.'
'First light -Sky Safari 6 Pro'
'Have tried everything BUT Sky Safari Pro for decade + (after finding great features across several different app’s, but never
in one...), finally plunked down the $ - Sky Safari 6 Pro the best by far. Spend the extra dough and go deep get the Pro
version-no regrets here. 17.2 mag. limit works f
'It makes it easy to work with your telescope. Really saved a lot time.'
'Great app for everyone with a deep interest in the sky and everything in it. It’s all there.'
'This is the single best app that I have ever used! I love it.'
'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
'If you like the stars.\nThere is nothing better in the store.\nPeriod.'
'Great but version 6 could have been better'
'I have been a SkySafari Pro user since version 3. As an amateur astronomer and astrophotographer, I consider this app an
essential tool for planning targets for both outreach and imaging due to the convenience of having this powerful app on my phone.
\n\nI consider this a 5 star app but am only gi
'Fantastic app, but no Starlink satellites. :('
'This is one of my favorite apps ever! It easily and reliably controls my Celestron Evolution through the telescopes wifi. Wish it
would show the SpaceX Starlink satellites though. Otherwise 5/5 A+++'
'AR does not work. Now fixed!'
'App crashed every time AR is turned on. Has now been fixed! Great job by the developers'
'Very Useful App'
'I\'m new to astronomy and using the app with a Celestron Evolution 8HD. Connecting the app to the scope using wifi, alignment, &
finding objects in the sky using the app is very simple. The app provides a ton interesting information for those wanting to
learn about the universe. The app is well
'Sky safari 6 pro'
'Absolutely beautiful! So inspiring to look, read and learn!'
'Use this app all the time and is reliable.\nTelescope use through SkySafari app difficult with Celestron go-to scope.'
'Pro or Amature'
'Amateur astronomer who loves this app. So easy to use with tons of info. Even got my niece interested in space. Must recommend'
'What’s not to like?'
'Long time Sky Safari user, decided to go to the pro version for the additional features... didn’t need it, just really really
'SkySafari Pro 6'
'Excellent. Pro 6 has amplified observing sessions. Fast preparation and reference in the field. Comprehensive and versatile. Take
the time to learn it’s extensive capabilities and you are well rewarded \nFun to use.'
'Unable to use augmented reality on IPad'
'I cannot get the app to connect to my camera on my iPad to use the augmented reality. I have checked the settings on my iPad to
make sure the app is allowed to connect to the camera. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app. I have swiped down on the
screen while in augmented reality to change th

'Cool app - no support except through reviews?'
'Keep getting a zen desk rejection on site to get support. Stuck in a loop!! Frustrating.\nHow does Comet NeoWise NOT make the

'Awesome app, one of my favorites.'
'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:
'Latest upgrade for AR reduces performance'
'1/1/2020 update, I love this program but they keep making 2Gb updates there must be a way to make bug fixes and patches that are

'Comet 289p inaccurate data'
'This comet currently has a magnitude of about 18 and Sky Safari Pro 6 is showing -1.6 magnitude. Not even close! Also, tried to
