    Sky map will not calibrate to the correct compass heading. I have tried manual and automatic settings, but it drifts away by at least30-degrees. Makes pinpointing a specific object difficult. Is this a new bug?
  • Love it!

    I have over the years had the free Version of this app and love it never had a Single problem with it. It’s always work really well. So with all the telescopes that I own I bought this and have never ever regretted it I’ve tried others but this one here seems to be the best one out that’s why I gave it five stars would love to been able to give it six. I’ve had it on a lot of phones over the years both iPhones and androids alike.

    My Beautiful Bride of 12 years, and myself, have decided to live in an RV. After work we go to where ever the RV is parked for the weak and enjoy the freedom we have found! This wonderful app has opened our eyes to the magnificent sky our God has created. Doesn’t matter day or night, we are constantly searching for new things we’ve never seen. I love this app!! It’s detail is stunning!!! Standing on top of my RV, the view is magnificent!!!!!
