Is anybody using the app SkySafari 3?

Posted by Paul Kesterton at 10:32 on 2012 Feb 03

Is anybody using the iPhone/iPad/iPod/Android app SkySafari 3?SkySafari comes in three versions, the version I would be interested in is the pro version:'SkySafari Pro - the extreme version has all the features of SkySafari Plus, along with 15 million stars and 740,000 deep sky objects. For professionals, or the obsessed observer who wants it all!'In particular, I am interested in the GoTo capabilities of SkySafari. Does anybody have any experience of this?Paul

Thanks Paul, sounds good. Are you using Wi-Fi (SkyFi) or the SkyWire?Paul
