The OS upgrade went well but I discovered that SN7 wouldn't render the time properly in the GUI.

I figured uninstalling SN7 and then upgrading to SN8 would fix this.

I figured wrong.

I would contact Simulation Corporation about this but their site will not allow me to sign up or sign in. Apparently it seems to

be convinced my browser cookies are not enabled enough. Clicking to enable achieves nothing.

Has anyone else had rendering problems with SN8 and Catalina?

That's a good point, I just assumed it was.

SkySafari 6 Pro works fine, as do other astronomical apps from the Apple Store. Gatekeeper won't let Stellarium 0.19.2 run. Apart from the GUI rendering glitch in SN7/8 it seems to run fine. I wonder if Simulation Curriculum will release a patch for this?

 

A few years ago I ran Win 7 and I got a free version of SN7 with one of my Orion scopes. I ran it for ages until a Simulation Curriculum update borked it.

 

I took a chance and ran SN7 Enthusiast on Win 7 and it was fine. So later I downloaded it onto my Mac. I just wish there was a way of contacting Simulation Curriculum.

Hi, MacOS Catalina introduced a rendering error on the toolbar and a few other places in Starry Night 8.  We're working on it and will issue an update soon.  Unfortunately these things sometimes happen with new OS releases.  Thanks for your patience.  Pedro
