2015 PC Magazine Editor's Choice! Awarded Best Stargazing App by Tap Magazine!
This app is a true, hardcore astronomer's companion. It's meant to be used with a telescope, and even has a log where you can enter in the telescope(s) you have along with their lens details. The app provides super detailed information about the sky and all its heavenly bodies. This includes constellations, the exact bearing and location of each object's relation to the Earth updated in real-time and zoom in capabilities to see 3D images of the objects you want to look at. The app was recently updated to also include satellites, such as the Hubble telescope. Currently, this is the most detailed map of the universe available in the App Store. It will even identify craters on the moon!
This app is not really for amateur sky watchers. It's for the real deal - people who love astronomy. If you are one of those, then this is the best you can do.
Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Comes with Apple Watch support.
