Quote:I am of the opinion that cell phone or tablet based astronomy is not for me. I prefer the full blown Windows apps that I run on my graphics workstation notebook PC and my desktop graphics workstation PC. PhotoShop screams on them, and so does TheSkyX, which is the astronomy app that many professional telescope operators use. Besides, the small cell phone screens are too difficult for my 56 year old eyes.

Quote:For me the same. I used to have Starrynight in 2003 but then I switched to the free and better Stellarium which I still run on my Mac. I have Skysafari Basic on my Mac as well but doesn't offer much compared to Stellarium.But on my Android phoblet (Note 2) I have Skysafari Pro and use it as a pocket sky atlas during observing. Great tool !And back to 2011 when I had an iPad for a while I used the iOS version as well.
