Why this Star finder app rather than the numerous other ones available? Astrovisuals has over 15 years' experience producing the "Star Disc", a physical Planisphere that is easy to use, clear, uncluttered and pleasing on the eye. We have now created an app based on that design. The result is an app that is beautiful to look at, but that also provides a practical guide to the appearance of the night sky. And no mythical animal pictures for the constellations!

This is the app I really wanted
Most the apps on App store have elaborate AR functions and graphics. For me who already knows the constellation knowledge, conversely, those apps may be sometimes not easy to use. So I was looking for a simple and functional planisphere app.
This app has enough functions, and it is easy to watch and a good design.
