Ratings and Reviews
Love it, definitely would recommend a purchase.
Listen this app is exactly what your looking for If you love space, and space facts, own or plan to own a telescope, or just curious about what’s above your head at the moment this is the app for you. The price tag might seem steep but the information value, easy to use interface and level of stellar catalogs you get is worth it. Besides being vast in data this app is very informative, visually pleasing and a grate night sky navigation tool for novice and experienced astronomers. Telling you direction, ascension and magnitude of celestial bodies and stellar objects. On top of that there is an entire satellite catalog for you to track and view. It also has built-in compatibility for most rotor based scopes so you can keep speedy object in view. This app is a definite must have if you are an aspiring astronomer or astrophotographer.
This is a great app for the amateur astrophysicist in all of us. I’ll spend an hour or two with my boyfriend or homeboys just chlllin outside star (& planet!)—gazing. It’s truly delightful! I especially like learning about constellations and celestial bodies that I have always known existed but never knew the actual specifics of. If you’re a hardcore scientist, you will most definitely enjoy the nitty-gritty minutiae & super specific knowledge of space you can gain with this app; and if you’re just someone who enjoys the occasional PBS galactic special, then you’ll simply enjoy the (literal) cosmic amount of information at your fingertips. Major kudos to the creative design team—the artwork is majorly incredible, especially how ancient constellations are grafted over the sky, painting a picture of how our ancestors wove together stories and portraits of heroes & monsters just by looking upward. Enjoy friends!
The universe in your hand.
This app, Luminos, is absolutely amazing to me in how thorough it is for those interested in astronomy. I am not affiliated with the developer in any way and am just a retiree with a nice telescope and a passion for stargazing. But I am so satisfied with the quality and user-friendliness of Luminos that I felt compelled to let others know that it is well worth every penny of the cost. I have had planetarium software on my desktop before but Luminos out shines them all and provides the convenience of a handheld app. From my armchair I can plan the evenings stargazing targets, check to see where and when my favorite targets will be in my limited view like the planets, space station, Messier galaxies, and meteor showers. The more that I use the app, the more I find to see.
