Hi! My name is Maxim. I'm author of some mobile applications for Windows Phone platform.
Let me introduce the “must have” application for any amateur astronomer ;).
It helps to determine how deep-space objects can be seen (in terms of scale) while using telescope with different eyepieces (visual observations) or CCDs (astrophoto).
For results visualization, any object from following lists can be used:

• Messier (available in demo);
• Abell;
• Barnard;
• Collinder;
• IC;
• Lynds;
• Melotte;
• NGC.

This leads to ability to visualize more than 20 000 (!!!) objects.
This release contains database of 450 telescopes, 350 eyepieces and 180 CCDs.
User defined equipment can be created.

NASA «Sky View Virtual Observatory» used as image source. It helps to reach very high accuracy and quality of generated images.

New in release 1.1:
• New catalogs added;
• Minor UI changes.

Price: $0.99
Fully functional demo with ability to preview full Messier catalog!
You can get it on Windows Phone Store

You can browse other applications on store or site.
I'm very interesting in recieving any feedback!

Will you release this application for Idevices or android? I used to have a Windows phone, but no longer... I imagine you will have much greater potential customer interest on Apple or Android platform...

Hi guys!
Sorry but, currently I have no plans to port my apps to “IDevices” or Android platform. My primary target is Windows Phone and Windows 8 tablets and I believe U already can find all necessary apps in Google Play and AppStore.
