Excellent app for assessing night sky quality

This is an excellent app for monitoring night sky quality. It is not as accurate as a dedicated sky quality meter, but in my opinion not far behind at a fraction of the cost. Submitted readings are then visible on the on line Dark Sky map. By adding a personal tag in iPhone settings you are then able to distinguish your own submitted readings from any others taken at the same location. I have previously exchanged emails with Norbert about the app whose customer service was great.

Very useful

Great App. Very useful. I particularly like the Cloud forecast which seems to be quite accurate so far. Would be 5 stars if there was some information about the Seeing and Transparency scales. I can only assume they are out of 10 as I’m getting predictions I’ll to £ so far. The only Seeing scale I could find online gives scores out of 5 so if can’t be using that one.
