What's New in Version 2.5.1
Minor bug fixes.
RA and Declination!
Information just pop out when you tap it hahah, feels so good. Love those details! Better than Star Light!
But for some further galaxy and nebulae, they are just some pictures with clear edges. It's better to provide more information rather than just "credit" lol such as more pictures and distance and such
Please add on horizontal coordinates for stars ~ It's better for observation <3
Used it last night to watch/look at the "blood moon". Had looked at some internet information, but this app really gave me a beautiful view of the whole night sky! I've always wanted to look at the constellations, and I know this will be such a great aid. So much better than looking in a book, and then at the night sky! For only the first time I've really used it, I think I'm going to love it!!
Best $1.99 I've ever spent. Lots of fun to look at the night sky and have a guide automatically orient to my direction and show what I'm seeing. Would have been a lot of help in my Scouting days to teach astronomy. Well done,
