The SQM / NELM user feedback is in the Pro version. But in the lite version it's under the hood. The lite version submits these values as hi precision SQM values, along with position, pointing etc. The only difference is that these values dont show up in the user interface. These values can and will be used by the IDA and other parties. For instance Globe at Night. The added value is in the data. Therefore the app should be as simple as possible, attractive, free for the masses. Like we did with the VenusTransit app. More than 130.000 downloads in 2 weeks generating lots of useful data and raising awareness worldwide.
A sample of the data submitted:
datetime latitude longitude moonperc device deviceangle devicesqm
28-03-13 50,8 5,8 99 iPhone5,2 89 20,82
You can see that even the moon percentage is calculated, and if the device is correctly pointed towards the Zenit.
