The release is medio/end april. Depending on Apple. @core i couldn't say it better! There is an indicator (free/pro) in the database. And since it will be a mass product, i expect that measurements will not be at 'pro' level. But we hope to get a *lot* of measurements reducing possible errors. As we did with the VenusTransit app (15.000 good measurements out of 50.000, stil a lot!) But i'll leave the interpretation and reduction to researchers. @John, the data will be available on a website similar like this one: sqm.waarnemen.com . So it will be possible to lookup your own measurements and submit them to other sites/organisations.

The Dark Sky Meter app is now available in the App Store. Maybe I'll get a chance to try it out tonight.

I think I may have made a mistake , I downloaded this one , I think it requires an SQM-LE ( whatever that is) it cost me 6.99 ,
Is there a link to the proper one as this is the only one I can find.

Downloaded. 5 bucks is a bit pricey for something that requires additional hardware to calibrate.

You ever think of making the 'lite' version pay and donate it to the dark sky association? That would be darn cool.

I can borrow a SQM from our Planetarium so I hope to calibrate my iPhone 5 soon. I think $5 is a great price. I love that there are so many good Astro apps available for the price of a fast food lunch.

I just downloaded the free version for evaluation purposes. Can I propose a product enhancement request for the Pro-version: next to the cloud prediction, why not incorporate seeing and transparancy forecast info. I would like to refer to "Sky Harbinger" in the App store in order to illustrate what I mean. This app gets its info from the 7timer website.

A little heads up. This is a screenshot of the free Public Outreach 'lite' version aimed at a broad audience with the goal to provide tons of measurements worldwide.. It uses an approximate scale, no output in SQM/NELM and lacks the maps and weather features of the pro version. But this version will submit detailed measurements to researchers and the folks at the IDA.




Hi, I can't download the app from the UK AppStore. Is there some issue with UK distribution?
