I take my astronomy seriously!

This app has always been very accurate, observing mars it’s one of my favourite things to do every 18 months. This app gives me superb Topographical detail, in real time. so I always know what I’m looking for even when the seeing conditions aren't good!
This app is great for the armchair astronomer or the serious observer🔭🔭🔭🔭🔭🔭🔭🔭🔭

Missing a vital feature

Like MoonGlobeHD this is a great app, intuitive, tactile, gorgeous and informative. BUT it is missing one vital feature - the ability to see what Mars looks like when viewed from earth. If you are looking at Mars through a telescope and want to identify the features which are visible now, this app doesn’t help! It’s perplexing because the sister app has this feature - it’s called the ‘Viewpoint’ feature and allows you to see the correct phase and orientation as viewed from earth. Huge omission which makes it barely useable for the observational astronomer.

Mars

Unbelievable to see the pictures as clearly as these. It’s proof of Glacier and ice sheets over the surface.
Some of the rocks must weigh tons. Amazing Thankyou
