For any Astronomy buffs like myself the new and greatly improved SkySafari 3 is now available for download.
They have 3 versions.
I just download the the Pro version last night and it is HOT! Intro pricing on all 3 products. The "Pro" version is just $29 and is well worth the money.
- SkySafari 3 - $2.99, 50 MB. 120K stars, no telescope control.
The basic version of SkySafari 3 shows you 120,000 stars, plus 220 of the best-known star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies in the sky. It displays the Solar System's major planets and moons using NASA spacecraft imagery, and includes the best-known 20 asteroids and comets.
- SkySafari 3 Plus - $14.99, 180 MB, 2.5M stars, telescope control.
SkySafari 3 Plus adds a hugely expanded database - and wired or wireless telescope control - to our basic version. It shows you 2.5 million stars, and 31,000 deep sky objects - including the entire NGC/IC catalog. It includes over 4,000 asteroids, comets, and satellites with updateable orbits. And it can point your GoTo or "Push-To" telescope anywhere in the sky, using your iPhone/iPad/iPod's built-in WiFi, and our SkyFi or SkyWire serial accessories.
- SkySafari 3 Pro - $59.99, 500 MB, 15M stars, telescope control.
The all-new SkySafari 3 Pro has the largest database of any astronomy app, period. It contains everything in SkySafari 3 Plus - but also includes over 15.3 million stars from the Hubble Guide Star catalog, plus 740,000 galaxies down to 18th magnitude, and over 550,000 solar system objects - including every comet and asteroid ever discovered. Yet it runs just as fast and smoothly as our $3 basic version.
