iCSC: Clear Sky Chart Viewer
By Random Widgets Inc.
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Choosing when and where to observe is hard. It's a pain to take out your telescope and then having to put it away when clouds quickly roll in.
Well, now you don't have to. With iCSC on your iPhone, you can easily search around for the best location, using Clear Sky Charts published by Attilla Danko.
The Clear Sky Chart, invented and maintained by Attilla Danko, shows at a glance when, in the next 48 hours, one might expect clear and dark skies for a specific observing site.
There are over 4600 charts available for North America, with data provided by Allan Rahill of the Canadian Meteorological Center. These charts provide Cloud Cover, Transparency, Seeing, Darkness, Wind, Humidity, and Temperature. Users can also enable a legend to help read the charts.
iCSC allows users to find charts by title, location, or with a map. Users can then save the charts that they use often.
While Clear Sky Charts are targeted at astronomers, anyone who wishes to look into the heavens, or needs a highly accurate sky forecast can benefit from iCSC: Clear Sky Chart Viewer.
