Description of SkySafari 7 Pro

SkySafari makes stargazing a simple pleasure. It has the largest database of any astronomy app, includes every solar system object ever discovered, offers unparalleled accuracy, advanced planning and logging tools, flawless telescope control, and provides the very best experience under the stars when you depend on it. Don’t postpone joy. Discover why SkySafari is the #1 recommended astronomy app for serious amateur astronomers since 2009. Here's what’s new in version 7: + Complete support for iOS 16 and iPhone 14. Version 7 brings a new and immersive stargazing experience. + Events Finder - go to the new Events section to unlock a powerful search engine that finds astronomical events visible tonight and far into the future. The finder dynamically generates a listing of moon phases, eclipses, planetary moon events, meteor showers and planetary phenomenon such as conjunctions, elongations and oppositions. + Notifications - the notifications section has been completely revamped to allow you to customize and manage which events trigger an alert notification on your device. + Telescope Support - telescope control is at the heart of SkySafari. Version 7 takes a giant leap forward by supporting ASCOM Alpaca and INDI. These next generation control protocols allow you to effortlessly connect to hundreds of compatible astronomical devices.

SkySafari 7 brings social stargazing to mobile devices with two new features to help you connect with other like minded people. OneSky - allows you to see what other users are observing, in real time. This feature highlights objects in the sky chart and indicates with a number how many users are observing a particular object.

After initiating SkyCast, you can generate a link and conveniently share it with other SkySafari users via text message, apps or social media accounts. + Sky Tonight - jump to the new Tonight section to see what’s visible in your sky tonight. Expanded information has been designed to help plan your night and includes Moon & Sun info, calendar curations, events and the best positioned deep sky and solar system objects. + Improved Observation Tools - SkySafari is the perfect tool to help you plan, record and organize your observations. New workflows make it easier to add, search, filter and sort data. + Home Screen and Lock Screen Widgets keep your favorite astro information at your fingertips.

Reviews of SkySafari 7 Pro

  • Lost many of the great functions of SkySafari 6 Plus

    I’ve been using and upgrading my SkySafari apps for many years. I applaud the creators of SkySafari for a magnificent astronomy software system but I must say that I just don’t understand why many of the really good general functions of 6 Plus have been taken out of 7 Pro. I’m just disappointed. I know you need to make money but why change things that just worked well. Without going into too many details, I’m talking about the on-screen/chart menu of sub-functions and how they no longer are scrollable when viewed in portrait mode. That’s just one of many issues I think Pro 7 has compared to 6 Plus. I am reluctantly using Pro 7 because it interfaces with Skywatcher Synscan telescope control. However, If I move my finger across the screen to move around the chart, my telescope sometimes begins to slew without any means to stop it. That is a disaster waiting to happen. Its happened to me several times. I have to stop and quit SkySafari and Synscan and initiate a new alignment process to regain proper telescope control. I hope this gets fixed or I’ll never upgrade this app again. If someone with SkySafari can contact me, I would give more detail about the issues I’ve found.
  • What’s the point of the Pro Version?

    I have been using the Plus version for years and it’s great. But, last night I was reading The Astrophotography Planner by Charles Bracken. It only covers 87 objects to photograph and one is CTB1 also known as Abell 85, the Garlic Nebula. I searched for this in Sky Safari Plus and it wasn’t there. It had Abell 82, 83, 84, and 86 but not 85. I thought, well, it must be time for me to upgrade to Sky Safari Pro since it’s supposed to have many more objects. But, Sky Safari Pro doesn’t have Abell 85 either. Why not? For the Pro version I expect that you would have the entire Abell catalog. Why add most of the Abell list but not all of it? Seems like I wasted my money on the Pro Version.
    Update: the developer said I should try downloading the On Demand Data. So I did that and guess what? Still no Abell 85. When I search for Abell now it gives me 10,000 results! But not Abell 85. It still shows Abell 1-84 and 86+.

    Developer Response

    Hello, Did you go into Menu --> Settings --> On-Demand Data to enable the free database extensions? I think that's what you are missing.
  • Powerful - the best you can get

    I have the Pro Version and use it to find things in the sky, check what’s coming, learn about millions of objects, explore the solar system and galaxy, control my telescopes from my phone, simulate celestial events such as conjunctions, and just marvel at the beauty of the app itself. It’s best in a larger iPad screen but a smartphone also works. Super packed with features for any user, good support, and regular updates. Highly recommended. One of the apps I use the most (but then, I’m an amateur astronomer).
