Best planning app for astrophotography
Night or day, this will tell you where the sun pr moon will be almost exactly so that you can research a place that you wanted to photograph, and get the sunset or the moon in the picture. There's the VR piece that helps you find exactly where the Milky Way is going to show up at night and exactly what time it will be, with so many time saving features you're going to delete the other apps that this will cover and do 10 more that you couldn't do without. If you're serious about your star photography in any aspect you will not waste your money here. I guarantee that.
Photopills if you're listening there is one thing I recommend you put in- the Apple Watch functionality! How awesome would it be to get notifications on your wrist and to get the research data easily on your wrist? This will help everyone! Thank you!
Dozens of great shots planned with PhotoPills
The best planner I've used. Been a photopiller for over two Milky Way seasons and this tool has paid itself many times over.
I use it for planning almost every shoot, doing the hard math for calculating exposures, star trails and more.
The widgets make it easy to check today's light schedule and you can plan for locations across the globe months in advance.
If you're serious about filming the night sky then you should be a photopiller too!
Great app--when can you make a macbook Pro version?
I've used the augmented reality for stuff on the fly, but am just now learning how to use the planning tools, which seem fantastic. I would love, however, to have a version on my MacBook Pro that would enable me to plan trips from home all that much faster and not have to strain my eyes for a couple of hours looking at the small screen.
