Some call it the astronomy app on steroids! We just call it the biggest and best astronomy app in the entire app universe. The all-new StarSeek 3 Max boasts the largest database of stars and deep-sky objects of any astronomy app - hands down. Itâ€™s a super-sized mega-app for the amateur astronomer who wants to go deeeeeep! StarSeek 3 Max enables control of Orion computerized â€œGoToâ€ telescopes (and many other brands) from your Apple device, with the optional Orion StarSeek Wi-Fi module or (coming soon!) Orion StarSeek Telescope Control Cable. NOTE: Orion is the exclusive licensee for distribution of the Southern Stars SkySafari apps, sold by Orion under the name StarSeek. The current versions of StarSeek 3 Pro and StarSeek 3 Max are largely identical to SkySafari 3 Plus and SkySafari 3 Pro, respectively. StarSeek 3 (standard edition) is a smaller, 50MB edition that differs substantively from SkySafari 3. Weighing in at over 400MB, StarSeek 3 Max contains everything in StarSeek 3 Pro, 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 basic version. With an iPhone 3GS, 4, iPad or iPad 2, or 4th-generation iPod Touch, just hold it up to any portion of the sky and StarSeek automatically displays a matching star map that moves as you move your iDevice! Identify stars and planets by holding your phone next to them. Pinpoint any object in the sky by simply following the guiding arrow! The red "night vision" mode preserves your dark adaptation while you explore. StarSeek 3 Max accurately shows the sky from any place on Earth up to a million years in the past or future. It includes 1100 descriptions of constellations, stars, and planets written by professional astronomers. And it contains over 800 astrophotographs. The Time Flow animation feature lets you compress up to years of time into seconds! StarSeek also includes SkyWeek from Sky & Telescope magazine. It's a week-at-a-glance summary of sky events featuring interactive sky charts. StarSeek 3 Maxâ€™s gorgeous, streamlined user interface and seemingly infinite content takes exploring the night sky to an exciting new dimension - and turns your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch into a futuristic telescope controller. Get it today! WHAT'S NEW in StarSeek 3 Max: 1) Hubble Guide Star catalog; PGC galaxies to mag 18; complete solar system database of 550,000 objects. 2) Spectacular new horizon panoramas, improved Sun glow, horizon glow, and sunset effects. 3) New scrolling toolbar gives you easy access to common functions. 4) Artistic illustrations of all 88 constellations, which fade in and out of view as you pan around the sky chart. 5) Animated panning to selected objects now provides better sense of where they are located in the sky. 6) Support for the gyroscope built into the iPhone 4, 4th-gen iPod Touch, and iPad 2 for smoother tracking motion. 7) SkyWeek from Sky & Telescope magazine! 8) "Tonight's Best" list of objects, customized for your location, date, and time. 9) Comets are now rendered more realistically, with tails. 10) Orbits of the planets and their moons illustrate their paths through space. 11) Constellation labels are brighter for improved readability. 12) Night vision mode has numerous improvements, including a Night Vision toolbar button. 13) A new "Center" button in the main toolbar makes it easier to center the selected object in the sky chart, and keep it locked there. 14) A "local Align" (sync) function for Orion, Celestron, and SkyWatcher telescopes. 15) For computerized "push-to" telescopes, StarSeek now does a 2-star alignment, eliminating the need to level the telescope mount base.
