Update problem

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

Star dreams

See. I grew up in the foothills east of San Diego, California. The sky is often clear enough to see many stars most of the year.
Sky & Telescope magazine makes it easy to explore the sky and follow the location of planets , stars, and comets. Now I live in
Fresno where the sky is most often shroud

Best astronomy app

Pro version: Very great tool for serious amateur astronomy. I love how you can see what the object looks like in the eyepiece.
Great for Star-hopping if you don’t have a clock drive. I also think the AR feature is amazing! You can go deep sky with this
app. Tons of options.

SkySafari has always been a great app!

09 Dec 2020

SkySafari has always been a great app for observational use as well as communicating upcoming events. I use it for myself as well
as for others as a pointer for where to look for the events like yhis year’s closest conjunction between Saturn and Jupiter in
800 years.

Along with this “

It could be way better.

I have a few suggestions:

1. Can you add ability to tag up to three items. So their position can be tracked relative to each other over time? More like a
group select feature.

2. An option to select specific satellites to track would also be great rather than having the thousands available displa

Horrible Support

Dear Simulation Curriculum Team, please figure out how to do support right. I want to display solar system distances in miles, but
cannot figure out how to do this. Object Info shows distances in km and light time units (usually seconds or minutes). How do I
see miles? Many people on Cloudy Nights a

Great App. But my telescope won’t be controlled.

I used the free version for a long time. I really like this application. I recently bought a 10’’ SCT with GoTo. I was so
looking forward to controlling the scope with my iPhone and iPad. But, I cannot get the two to cooperate. After a few hours of
trying and retrying and researching, it looks like

Awesome! Except?

This app is great except that every time I go to use it, if I haven’t used it for a week the app won’t open and I have to
delete it and download again. I then must re-enter all my scope data. What a hassle huh? A real short coming for such a well
thought out app. Still, it beats using the controller

One of the best available - but having some proble

This is a remarkable tool and is definitely great for serious stargazers as well those new to the hobby. However, as mentioned by
others, the in-App purchases look to be very interesting, but have problems installing correctly. For instance, I purchased the
Apollo Missions add on and, despite my bes

Sky Safari Rocks !

I have been an amateur astronomer for 40 years and own a 5 inch, an 8 inch, and 10 inch ‘scopes. I drive all three around the
sky with an iPad, Wi-Fi, and Sky Safari version 5 and 6 software. I really enjoy creating observing logs with Sky Safari of my
observing sessions to compare how different obj

This is astonishing

I have had Starry Night Pro on Mac for many years. SkySafari is all that AND portable. The detail and sheer amount of
information is amazing. Having all of this functionality on an iPad is incredibly useful.

I first installed this on my 13” iPad Pro, assuming this would need all of that power

Maui Stargazing’s go to tool

I use sky safari every night while presenting deep space objects to my tour guests near the summit of Haleakala on the Hawaiian
island of Maui. Wouldn’t leave home without it!

PGC purchase won’t load

Love this app but my PGC in app purchase won’t load. The money going to Sky Safari didn’t seem to be a problem? I looked in
the forum and other people have had the exact same problem last year. Can you guys please fix?

This app is a game changer. Love it.

I’m 57 and remember the days of manually searching for objects in my telescope. Being able to select an object and hit ‘Go
To’ is just awesome.

I use this every day

It's an awesome app. I use every day to look at the ecliptic and see the relative positions of the planets and moon. It is most
helpful to plan viewing at the telescope.

'A lot of features, some are hard to find'

'I needed help from the developers to turn on AR mode:\n1-enable toolbar\n2-slide it sideways to find the compass\n3-click
compass\n4-click “A/R”\n5- swipe down on screen to increase contrast to see AR in screen'

'Excellent tool for astrophotography'

'Easy to use. Has it’s flaws when used as go-to, understandable due to the complexity of algorithms that are needed for such a
task, but if supervised carefully it works well. Intuitive interface easy to get along. Thumbs up!'

planet rises or phases?'

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.'
