The site http://www.nightskiesnetwork.com is a great resource for cloudy night observing. I used to be part of Slooh but eventually it got too expensive and not as friendly. This NSN is very cool and very nice. Seems like a very cool service which most of you probably already know about.

Yes I am a broadcaster and regular. Hopefully I will be able to broadcast more often as I figure out my equipment.

I don't get there often enough, but there's a good group that hangs out there. :ubetcha:

Yea, it's my favorite when I find the time. The guys who do it every night are the ones I really appreciate.

Try Puffin. It works on my iPhone for watching NSN, so it should do the same on an iPad.

Puffin does work, sometimes I have trouble resizing the windows, but that's better lately. I also sometimes have trouble with the chat.

The only window I can't resize is, of course, the viewing one. It is slow to scroll the text in the chat box. Still, I like the portability around the house or outside.

Actually I figured out on the iPad where to bring up the keyboard manually, works great now, especially when I have LTE or I'm on wifi.

I've really gotten used to letting others do the work on NSN, there are some good shows. Lets hope this summer I can add to them. :)

I am trying out the Photon browser which supports Flash. Works OK. You can full screen the viewing window no problem.

Thanks for reminding me there are ways to view Flash on IOS.

Thanks for the tip. I have installed Puffin and NSN is now on my iPad. Has anyone figured out what browser is needed on the Samsung phone (Android OS)?

Have been using Puffin for the last few days on my iPad exclusively and it's worked great.
