    Not calibrated

    Overall I like this app. It is easy to use. You look at the sky you put the circle on the star you want and it tells you what it is. The only thing bad at this point is two days ago the calibration doesn’t work. So when I came to Circle at the sky, the planet from my perspective is about a foot off to the left. I use the manual calibration tool, but when you use it you can’t see the name of the planet and you can’t make it stay on the planet. I do not see any way to get a hold a Overall I like this app. It is easy to use. You look at the sky you put the circle on the star you want and it tells you what it is.

Im searching for a clue on the Internet to fix it I find other people have had this problem also. If you can fix the calibration I would certainly give it a five star.

    Cosmic Binoculars

    An fantastic amazing app. Especially for young children. After learning about the planets, my daughter was dismayed that they weren’t lighting up the sky at night in real life. She felt better after I pointed out Mars, Jupiter & Saturn (or as she also knows them as Nergal, Marduk & Ninurta) with the naked eye. But this app brought it to another level. She understands the planets are far away and that this app is like a pair of cosmic binoculars. Her only disappointment now is not being able to see the dwarf planets Ceres, Makemake, Haumea & Eris. Please add in future versions.

    Not what I originally downloaded!!

    When I first got this app, I was mesmerized! Loved it. Very educational and my grandkids loved looking at the night sky with me. Then .... it changed. I can’t move and look at whatever I want to and see what it is, or what is on the other side of the world at a given point. I guess thats what I have to pay more money for. Not happy, and very hard to use for a senior. And when I tried to get App Support - “ HTTP Error 503. The service is unavailable.
