    I'll buy if there's a telrad feature and a time based star chart and star density feature.

    Wouldn't move as I scanned the sky, had really nice art and graphics, but wasn't what I was expecting. It's not like skyview

    Simply excellent. I am just beginning the hobby of astronomy and this has made it much more enjoyable. Great job.
