If you have a telescope, just strap the phone onto the OTA and you get a PUSHTO guide!

Does not show positions of Jupiter/Saturn's moons.

The only thing I'd like added for five stars is common names for the messier/catalog objects

Just installed this today. Tried to use it tonight but unfortunately the sky here is too overcast. Will try ASAP. First impressions though is that this is going to be an awesome program for my scope! Might not need to drag the laptop outside anymore!

EXCELLENT for push-to telescope users. MUCH better than Google Sky. Real time Alt/Az, Dec, RA, etc...

Great app but crashes very frequently (esp. when displaying "strange magn. field" or changing from night mode) on HTC wildfire.
