Equinox is a powerful planetarium program that has many features for both the beginner and advanced astronomer. It has filters for organizing deep sky objects with many controls to adjust the sky display, colors and fonts. Equinox can control most telescopes and there is a window that simulates a telescope's view. You can build tours and photo horizons and modify the database. You can even slew your telescope with voice commands.

Customer Reviews

Does not work with PHD Autoguiding

Quite a nice program, although useless for what I wanted it for.

Don’t be fooled, this version of Equinox does not work with PHD by Stark Labs. For that, which is the Pro version you can’t get it on the App Store and have to go to their web site.

I feel a bit let down that I now have to spend more to upgrade.
