Absolutely inferior app. Star Tracker Lite is the clearly superior choice.

Somethings off

I kept the app for years hoping it would calibrate properly but it never did. I like the app I just got tired

Exceeded my expectations!

This worked much better than I hoped it would. Even works in daylight and shows constellations below the horizon. Right now, Mars is in Gemini and the Hubble Space Telescope is in my porch swing! 🛰😁
