Yep. We'll start working on it right after the Android version is released.

Can someone confirm which flip view corresponds to a refractor with a diagonal....none, hor, vertical or both? Which for dobsonian? Thx in advance.

For dobsonian it's both. Don't know the refractor with diagonal.

You want Flip Horizontal for a refractor with diagonal.

Isn't the view in a dob simply upside down? I.e., just vertical and NOT both?

No, it is rotated 180 which makes it both upside down and reversed right/left.

Downloaded SS4 yesterday and I have to say, so far I am very pleased. Thanks for the introductory price.
I have already added all of my scopes and some eyepieces into the database.

David,

Why would you wonder if this was 4.0 when it is called 3.8.2? As we've said, SS 4 is not due out until around the end of the year. 3.8.2 is compatible with iOS 4 through 7. SkySafari 4 will be iOS 7 only.

Bill




Bill,
I am confused, did you change the name after you made this comment?

When I said SkySafari 4 would be iOS 7 only, I was speaking in the context of iOS. I just meant it would not run on earlier versions of iOS. We had always planned to release it on Android and Mac (in progress).

Will I be able to use my nexus 7 for telescope control?

Will the new Mac version include a correction for the problems with the SiTech Servo driver? thanks. Ron

Don't know yet. It is hard to fix it since we don't have a SiTech that has the problem. I will try to make sure it is worked on though.

Does that mean you have a SiTech that doesn't have the problem? Per my previous p-mail, depending on how long it takes and timing, I'm willing to loan you mine or test a beta fix. Ron
