Posted In iPad, iPhone - By Techtiplib on Thursday, September 18th, 2014 With No Comments »

Observer Pro is a groundbreaking app for advanced astronomy planning. No more guessing when that galaxy emerges from behind that pesky tree. No more estimating how many hours you’ll be able to image an object. This education app gives every astronomer the info they need right at their fingertips!

Exclusive features of this education app:

  • Over 14,000 deep sky objects included, all with closeup reference photos. No need to download anything after install! Advanced sorting and search make it easy to sift through all of them to find which objects belong on your observing list.
  • Measure your local horizon in minutes with your iPhone 4*!
  • Unique charts completely take the guesswork out of predicting object visibility. Your house, trees, mountains, or any other obstructions are completely factored in to all visibility charts.
  • New to astronomy? The Popular List shows trending objects based on observations logged by Observer Pro users. Now you can view a list of the best objects to observe based on actual observations!
  • Keep a list of your favorite observing sites, each with their own local horizon. Compare object visibility between sites to find the best spot to setup your scope.
  • There’s a lot to observe! Observer Pro gives you a place to maintain a list of your favorite objects as well as an observing list that you can take with you to the eyepiece (red-screen night mode is included). Observer Pro displays easy to see badges next to objects that are favorites or that have been observed.
  • 7Timer! astronomical weather forecasts for your observing sites are viewable without leaving Observer Pro. They give you the outlook on cloud cover, seeing, transparency, and more!
  • Simple and intuitive interface makes all these powerful features readily accessible. You don’t need to be a Certified Astro Geek to use it!

New features of version 1.0.1:

  • Added ability to remove entries from Observing History (swipe to delete)
  • Added Satellite and Hybrid view options to map view
