    I’m writing this review just because of how amazing this app is. I’m a kid who loves Astronomy, and takes it to long lengths. Just this Christmas, I got my first telescope! The Celestron 114 az Explorascope! I downloaded this app originally to see where my favorite star, Capella was located. Turns out, it had spot on location. I then got the full version, and have been using it on a weekly basis! This is an amazing app, and I look forward to using it for studying nebulas, planets, etc! I love this app mainly because I have been studying astronomy for about 5 years now, and have gone from knowing the basic 8 planets, to knowing the official names for several stars, galaxies, nebulae, and several other celestial bodies. This app is awesome for star gazing, planet watching, and exoplanet tracking! If you need a trustworthy, stable, easy to use app, download this for sure! My favorite part about this app is the mini lessons it gives you whenever you tap on a star, planet, nebula, star cluster, galaxy, you name it! I’m never downloading any other astronomy app! Thanks a bunch!! :)

    so far I’m livening this app... only thing is there seem to be no rocket bodies above the horizon.... there ear dozens below the horizon... so it stands to reason there would be an equal number above as well...
  • Love this app

    Sky map will not calibrate to the correct compass heading. I have tried manual and automatic settings, but it drifts away by at least30-degrees. Makes pinpointing a specific object difficult. Is this a new bug?
  • Love it!

    I have over the years had the free Version of this app and love it never had a Single problem with it. It’s always work really well. So with all the telescopes that I own I bought this and have never ever regretted it I’ve tried others but this one here seems to be the best one out that’s why I gave it five stars would love to been able to give it six. I’ve had it on a lot of phones over the years both iPhones and androids alike.
