SkEye Astronomy App

Being the avid space/ alien lover that I am, I found this really cool app for the android that allows you to use your phone as a telescope and navigate across the solar system. It’s called the SkEye Astronomy app! If you have a telescope, just attach your phone to the OTA and you pretty much have your own hand held guide! 

It has some pretty cool features including:

• Time machine : Jump to any date in past or future
 • Real time Alt-Azimuth and Equatorial coordinates
 • Messier objects
 • mini-NGC catalog (subset of ~180 bright objects)
 • Solar system objects including all 8 planets and the 4 Galilean moons
 • Night Mode
 • Search, with a guiding arrow
 • Alt-Azimuth, Equatorial grid
