SkySafari 6 Pro will revolutionize your astronomical viewing experience. It has the largest database of any astronomy app, includes every solar system object ever discovered, offers unparalleled accuracy, flawless telescope control, Augmented Reality (AR) mode, and provides the very best experience under the stars when you depend on it. Discover why SkySafari 6 Pro is the #1 recommended astronomy app for serious amateur astronomers since 2009.

Here's what's new in version 6:

1) Complete support for iOS 11 and iPhone X. We release regular updates.

2) Clouds and Astronomy. Two words that rarely go together. SkySafari 6 Pro will (optionally) back up all of your observing data in our secure cloud storage and make it easily accessible to multiple devices as well as from our new web interface, LiveSky.com.

3) We Have The Best Stars. Precise, modern and deep. We’ve updated our star catalog to use the latest and greatest, UCAC5 star catalog. If 25 million stars down to 15th magnitude isn’t enough for you, an easy in-app purchase gets you down to 16.5 magnitude and a whopping 100 million stars!

4) We Have The Best Galaxies. The PGC catalog includes galaxies down to 18th magnitude. Want more galaxies? How about 2.6 million more? An in-app purchase gives you access to the largest galaxy database available for your device.

5) Observers First. A redesign of our tools puts the active observer first. Quick access to features like your equipment, observing sites, lists, and observations make it easy and enjoyable to get out, observe, and record your observations. The observing sessions feature lets you collect your observations into groups that span a few hours, or a few nights.

6) Graph It. The completely new graph tool will give a quick visual representation of an object’s altitude above the horizon. Essential for planning your night’s observations.

7) Plan It. Make the most of your time under the stars. Our updated planner is a powerful tool that lets you create a list of targets for your observing session with filters like object types, specific time ranges, constellation, catalog, and more. Plan it and get more done.

8) Say It. Ever just wanted to just yell at your device and tell it what to do!? SkySafari 6 adds basic voice control for a wide range of operations. Say “select Jupiter,” “search for Titan,” “center on Polaris” and SkySafari will do the work for you. Yelling optional. 

9) Tilt It. Every old astronomy app these days lets your tilt and pan your device to show different parts of the sky, but who else lets you control your telescope that way!? “Tilt to slew” is an optional mode allowing you to keep your eye in the eyepiece, and, using the accelerometers in your device, gently translate the movements of your hands into smooth telescope motion.

10) Share It. SkySafari 6 is more than just a mobile app, it’s a new system to help organize and share your observing experiences. With a free signup, you can see and share your observing data from our web portal, LiveSky.com! Affordable premium memberships add online editing, so you can not only view, but edit your observations, add new observing sites, manage your equipment and more. Finally, (coming soon) you can view, edit and manage your settings files with SkySafari Web, our fully functional web version.

If you haven't used SkySafari 6 Pro before, here's what you can do with it:

• Hold your device up, and SkySafari 6 Pro will find stars, constellations, planets, and more! The star chart updates automatically with your movements for the ultimate stargazing experience.

• Simulate the night sky up to 10,000 years in the past or future! Animate meteor showers, conjunctions, eclipses, and other celestial events.

• Control your telescope, log and plan your observations.

• Night Vision.

• Orbit Mode. Leave the Earth’s surface behind, and fly through our solar system.

• Galaxy View shows the position of deep sky objects in our Milky Way!

• Much more!

Nieuw

Versie 6.3.0

• In the Observation screen you can now display the info for the object or center the object in the main chart.
• In the Observations screen, we no longer show sessions without any observations. We also show the number of observations in sessions that do have observations.
• When associating an observing list with an observation, we now show all observing lists rather than just those that contain the object. If the chosen list doesn't have that object in it, we give you the option to add it.
• There is a new option in the Object Info's more button to show all observing lists containing the object.
• In the Date/Time Picker dialog, there is now a "Now" button to set the date/time to the current time.
• Improved resizing of H-R Diagram.
• Various modifications for compatibility with soon to be released Starry Night 8.
• Various stability and performance improvements.

SS 5 is better

So far my experience with SS 6 Pro is disappointing. The data transfer like Observinglists and Equipment is unreliable and very error prone. Worst of all you have to do this manually and at least for me the instructions didn't work. Support goes via the community, but that is completely useless during the weekends. Sync via iCloud is no longer available. SS 6 seems to be written by- and for software nerds, not for the regular amateur astronomer. Very disappointing and likely my last SS purchase. Certainly I will not upgrade SS 5 on my iMac.

Most needed program!

Wonderful program! I use it mainly for iPad star hopping (i.e. goto sync goto sync etc) in search for very faint stars that are candidates for occultation by asteroids.
Hereby the iPad or iPhone controls the telescope with SkyFi.

The possibility to construct an accurate rectangular camera view in SkySafari for comparison with the real telescope image on a laptop is an enormous help!
Also, the GAIA extension database is recommended greatly.
Together with SkyFi a really marvellous combination.

Very nice program.

Very nice graphics. But I noticed that de coordinates for comets are wrong! Hope they will fix it.
