Quote:Can you use iPad and Sky Safari in "manual mode"? By that I mean attach the iPad or iPhone to your non motorized unit. Select the gyro function on Sky Safari, then adjust your unit until the iPad says you are pointing at your target?

Quote:Another nice thing about SkySafari is that you can turn on custom telrad circles that you can program to match the FOV of your binocular or favorite eyepieces. Very handy. I use the $15 "plus" version. It is pretty resource-hungry. First app to make me wish I had a newer device...
