This may not work with older versions of IOS. I am using ios 14 on an ipad mini 5th generation.
Hadn't seen this mentioned before so thought I would share it since most of those using sky safari are pushing dobs.
As you probably realized night mode in sky safari (red screen) will leave you blinded if you accidentally exit sky safari, or access pull down menus, etc.
You can put your ipad or iphone into red mode easily and then no longer use night mode in sky safari with a few simple settings.
You simply press the home button 3 times and you are in red screen mode for all apps.
To enable this:
Settings->Accessibility->Display and Text Size->Color filters (enable)
Choose "tint" and move intensity just a hair from all the way to the right
Chose "hue" and move it all the way to the left
Now, disable the filters option
Settings->Accessibility->Accessibility Shortcuts (enable Filter Shortcut)
Now press the home button 3 times fast.
I recommend setting sky safari to monochrome mode for best contrast. Pull down menu and lock screen rotation on your device. Now just rotate it 180 degrees to see newtonian fov (or use sky safari option if you prefer)
