Sky Safari Pro 3.0 Review

Sky Safari Pro 3.0 Review

Use Sky Safari on an iPad

Sky Safari is a star hopping planetarium software that runs on your ipad. This reviewer makes note of the fact that the software contains all the Hubble guide star catalog. You can point the ipad at the area of the sky you want to observe and it’ll display all the objects and interesting points in that area. You can then zoom in right down to 18th magnitude objects, read the information on what you are looking at and see an image of the object. The software allows you to use it as a planetarium or change it to equatorial mode for use more like a star chart. The downside was the backlight from the ipad ruining night vision.
