    Just started learning. Plotting RA and Dec of moon against western skyline. Getting ready for lunar eclipse 20-21 Jan 19. What a handy educational tool. Thanks

    Great fun and great features. Was in Key West recently, wanted to see the Southern Cross. You just simply search for the constellation, push on it on your phone, and then you’ll be able to see the arc it tracks on the sky, and what time it will be above the horizon. It told me that at 6:00am it would be visible and sure enough- I woke up early one morning and was able to see it!

    I rarely purchase any apps but this was well worth the price for the paid version. Easy to calibrate and customize. Thanks
