Ratings and Reviews
Only one complaint
This is a great app. The only complaint I have is in night mode there is a bar at the top that doesn’t turn red and is too bright.
Excellent app that has replaced my hand controller
I use this app on several Sky-Watcher mounts now and will never go back to using the hand controller. This interface is easier to navigate and works flawlessly. Location set up is done automatically which is another bonus.
Crashes every time in a few minutes
On iPhone XS, can’t even get through alignment. Crashes on first or if your lucky to get to the second just quits. Was really looking forward to this with the new built in WiFi on the XT10g but no go. Connects fine but won’t either crashes or freezes in a few minutes, never long enough to align.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
