SkySafari 6 Plus

SkySafari 6 Plus [Reference] App Description & Overview

SkySafari 6 Plus goes beyond most basic astronomy apps by providing you with a full-featured space simulator with telescope control and Augmented Reality (AR) mode.

Note that there is no discount upgrade path from SkySafari 6 Plus to SkySafari 6 Pro. Choose carefully!

Here's what's new in version 6:

1) Complete support for iOS 13 and iPhone 11. We got you covered and release regular updates.

2) Clouds and Astronomy. Two words that rarely go together. Rewritten from the ground up, SkySafari 6 Plus will (optionally) back up all of your observing data in our secure cloud storage and make it easily accessible to multiple devices as well as from our new web interface, LiveSky.com.

3) We Have The Best Stars. Precise, modern and deep. We’ve updated our star catalog to use the latest and greatest, UCAC5 star catalog.

4) Observers First. A redesign of our tools puts the active observer first. Quick access to features like your equipment, observing sites, lists, and observations make it easy and enjoyable to get out, observe, and record your observations.

5) Graph It. The completely new graph tool will give a quick visual representation of an object’s altitude above the horizon. Essential for planning your night’s observations.

6) Plan It. Make the most of your time under the stars. Our updated planner is a powerful tool that lets you create a list of targets for your observing session with filters like object types, specific time ranges, constellation, catalog, and more. Plan it and get more done.

7) Say It. Ever just wanted to just yell at your device and tell it what to do!? SkySafari 6 adds basic voice control for a wide range of operations. Say “select Jupiter,” “search for Titan,” “center on Polaris” and SkySafari will do the work for you. Yelling optional. 

8) Tilt It. Every old astronomy app these days lets your tilt and pan your device to show different parts of the sky, but who else lets you control your telescope that way!? “Tilt to slew” is an optional mode allowing you to keep your eye in the eyepiece, and, using the accelerometers in your device, gently translate the movements of your hands into smooth telescope motion.

9) Share It. SkySafari 6 is more than just a mobile app, it’s a new system to help organize and share your observing experiences. With a free signup, you can see and share your observing data from our web portal, LiveSky.com! Affordable premium memberships add online editing, so you can not only view, but edit your observations, add new observing sites, manage your equipment and more. Finally, (coming soon) you can view, edit and manage your settings files with SkySafari Web, our fully functional web version.

If you haven't used SkySafari 6 Plus before, here's what you can do with it:

• Hold your device up, and SkySafari 6 Plus will find stars, constellations, planets, and more!

• Simulate the night sky up to 10,000 years in the past or future! Animate meteor showers, conjunctions, eclipses, and other celestial events.

• Control your telescope, log and plan your observations.

• Orbit Mode. Leave the Earth’s surface behind, and fly through our solar system.

- Perfection

So easy to use, it almost feels like cheating! Highly detailed, very thorough catalogue of stars to 11-12 magnitude, make simple work of star hopping. Great for the casual or serious observer. Worth every single dollar!

- The must have!

I’m using this software from years.

- Best version yet!

Many confusing or misplaced settings have been moved to more logical locations. I particularly like the more logical Observe button with it's easier record function and putting the expand / contract in one place. The addition of the LiveSky is genius. I could go on for a while; but, best of all is the new pricing! Well done!

- Awesome!

Just what I was looking for...

- A Stellar Companion

This is an excellent stellar companion. As everyone with a phone or tablet knows there are apps, and then there are your favourite apps. The two or three you use everyday, all the time, apps that have become extensions of your connection to reality, and conduits of your creative expression and contribution. For me Sky Safari 6 plus is that app. Its interactivity is intuitive and easy to use. The science is thorough and impeccable, while still maintaining the awe and mystery that first drew us to the night sky. The descriptions are adapted from STARS by Jim Kaler; Professor Emeritus of Astronomy, University of Illinois and embody the same qualities. I am doing star research from an astrological perspective and Sky Safari 6 plus lists the stars in Ecliptic Longitude, as well as the other co-ordinate systems, so it is very easy to convert this to degree and sign of the zodiac if that is something that interests you. The data is in real time and I use it to check my list (and arithmetic) for accuracy. This exercise means I move around the app often, seeing and learning from its structure, which I highly value. If you love the sky you will love this app.

- Looking good

Setup was easy and smooth no glitches or issues with connections.

- Very useful

An excellent platform for exploring the sky, even controlling one’s telescope/mount. The FoV indicator has both horizontal and vertical degree measurements which is useful. Photo images of objects are beautiful and perfectly plate-solved. One downside: in the lists of things to search for, why oh why doesn’t it filter to things actually visible in the same hemisphere? Hardly “tonight’s best” if I’ll never see it...

- Excellent program

I have tried most of the astronomy programs for the I-pad and phone and this is the best in my opinion. This works well and I use it most of the time. Bill

- 5 star

Since using this app my night viewing has gone through the nights sky

- Great astronomy app.

All you need for serious observers in one package. Slight annoyance with bright comet list on iPad OS 9 not complete all the time.

- Upside down

I would have given 5 stars but everything's upside down which is a bummer

- Great app but !

App is brilliant but for some reason on the iPad mini 2 the compass is way off !! And no matter how many time is try and set gyro it’s way off ..now using another app which is free

- Fantastic app

A great app with loads of easy to use information, great for the new or experienced astronomer. Very impressed

- Excellent app, with just one irritation....

I’m new to astronomy and have found this app, quite literally, a brilliant way to find my way around. While it’s going to take me a while to learn the app, I can’t understand why everything’s out by between 90 and 180 degrees for some time and only corrects itself after an unpredictable period of time. Loses one star for this.

- No Wi-fi link.

As a guide to the night sky this is excellent. Lots of info and even allows you to keep an observation log. I bought it believing it to be an upgrade from SkyPortal which is free. I have the Celestron SkyPortal Wi-fi link and this allows me to control my scope from my iPad. But the upgrade will not connect even though SkyPortal still does. I wouldn’t have bought it had I known. I’m just glad I didn’t buy the Pro version. Stick with the free SkyPortal, it’s good enough for most astronomy.
