Description

From premier telescope maker Orion Telescopes & Binoculars comes a fun, powerful, and content-rich astronomy app for stargazers from beginner to advanced.

With Orion StarSeek anyone can easily find, identify, and learn about stars, planets, constellations, galaxies, and nebulas in the night sky from your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad!

What’s more, StarSeek enables wireless control of a “GoTo” telescope, when used with the optional StarSeek Wi-Fi module.

With its dynamic star chart containing 312, 000 stars down to 10th magnitude, 31, 000 deep-sky objects, and 700 solar system objects, StarSeek Standard Edition takes you deep into the universe.

NOTE: Orion is the exclusive licensee for distribution of Southern Stars (formerly Carina Software) SkySafari (formerly SkyVoyager) astronomy app, which is sold by Orion as StarSeek. The current version of StarSeek is largely identical to SkySafari, except that StarSeek has a much smaller file size. We plan to add features and functionality in the future that are exclusive to StarSeek, and Orion is now the exclusive distributor of the compatible Wi-Fi telescope control module designed to be used with StarSeek to wirelessly operate GoTo telescopes.

FEATURES

- See a detailed, colorful map of the night sky from any location on Earth, at any time up to 100 years in the past or future.

- Choose how to display the 88 constellations and what stars and object types to display. Turn labels on or off, add a coordinate grid, set magnitude limits and star color intensity, and much more.

- Double tap on any star or celestial object to pull up a panel of intriguing information about it.

- Database of 312, 000 stars down to 10th magnitude, with customizable magnitude limit setting.

- Includes the entire NGC, IC, Messier, and Caldwell catalogs of deep-sky objects – more than 31, 000 in all.

- Positions of solar system objects (planets, moons, comets, asteroids, and satellites) accurately computed to sub-arcsecond precision.

- Read interesting narrative descriptions of more than 1, 000 celestial objects, which may include observational highlights, history of discovery, scientific background, and more.

- View hundreds of color photographs of solar system objects deep space objects from NASA, the Hubble Space Telescope, professional observatories, and leading astrophotographers.

- With an iPhone 3GS, 4, or iPad, just hold it up to any portion of the sky and StarSeek automatically displays a matching star map! Identify stars and planets by holding the device next to them. Pinpoint any object in the sky by simply following the guiding arrow!

- With earlier versions of iPhone and iPod Touch, the built-in accelerometer moves the star chart automatically to match the angle of the device’s tilt, and you just swipe the screen with a finger to move the chart to match the direction you’re facing.

- Optional, red “night vision” mode helps preserve your eyes’ dark adaptation as you’re exploring the heavens.

- Time Flow feature lets you animate the night sky by compressing up to years of time into seconds, using simple VCR controls accessible from the main sky chart view.

- “Basic Concepts” chapter of articles is a treasure-trove of educational information about astronomy.

- Wirelessly control a motor-driven “GoTo” telescope, pointing it to any object in StarSeek’s extensive database. (Requires optional Orion StarSeek Wi-Fi Telescope Control Module.)
