Really good help with constellations, lovely!
Everything you want

The perfect app for amateur and serious stargazers. Intuitive and quick to learn. The quick link to Wikipedia to get more detail on major objects is ingenius, and using the accelerometer is a good as labels in the sky as you move about. I only wish at my age I could adjust the font size a bit larger. A SUPER BUY!
I love it, but...

I love the app but I find that many times it is not completely accurate.

I struggled with this app, but the support was brilliant. Now it work well - first class.

This astronomy app is simply superb. There's nothing better than sitting outside on a clear night with my two children looking at the sky identifying planets and stars with ease. Especially on a cold Canadian night when setting up the telescope is not feasible. With GoSoftWorks being a Canadian developer it made my decision in buying this inexpensive app that much easier. The promise of future free updates/upgrades for original purchasers is also a nice touch. For a future update I would like to see the inclusion of meteor showers and named comet identifications. I purchased GoSatWatch as well and is equally great. Nice work!
Perfect star/constellation guide!

This is a fantastic application, the best star finding guide that I could find! I find it easy to use, accurate, & great that it stays on your stars no matter how you turn your phone. I've always wanted to learn about the constellations & this makes it easy & fun to do so. Thank you!!
Very nice app

I am thoroughly enjoying using this app. The sky at night may be full of snow clouds but with the iPad I know what is out there!
Well worth the price

I know there is some free ones out there, but having tried them all. You get what you pay for. And this was worth th $5 I paid!
Hard to understand
By: Mizz Muzix - Feb 6, 2011
I thought this would show me what was able to be seen from my current location, and maybe it is, but I have no idea. It's very hard to understand. I went onto the website for more instructions, but they weren't helpful. Disappointing.

A great app that everyone interested in the nightsky should have.
Best star gazing program for the iPhone
By: iphone_CDN - 8-Aug-2009
The 2.0 update adds some very nice features like time lapse animation of the stars moving across the sky as well as a handy arrow superimposed on the center of the map to direct you to your point of interest.There's lots of objects to search for, including deep space items like galaxies and star clusters, and the whole screen moves so smoothly that it's real fun to use.Highly recommended: much faster and easier to get into than the more complicated Starmap.
Go sky watch

This app is the greatest for anyone, especially anyone who is interested in astromitity. Great learning device for all.
By: iM3u - Dec-2010
Fantastic app to impress anyone, but what's missing is the fact that you can't actually search for anything. Either that or I can't use it...Brilliant tho.

Je suis astronome amateur. Je fais de photos du ciel profond et des planètes avec un télescope et une caméra CCD. Je cherchais une application sur mon iPod Touch qui me permettrait de planifier mes soirées d'astronomie (visibilité de l'objet à mon endroit d'observation, sa localisation dans le ciel, l'information complète sur l'objet ...) ainsi qu'une utilisation sur le site d'observation (affichage en couleur rouge pour ne pas altérer la sensibilité de l'oeil dans le noir). Cette application est vraiment fonctionnelle et très facile d'utilisation. Elle permet de très bien visualisé la position de l'objet à photographier à l'heure précis d'observation (Nord, Sud, Est, Ouest, près du Zénith ou de l'horizon ...). Elle affiche aussi une image de l'objet. Le seul point faible que je lui trouve est qu'elle contient seulement 219 objets du ciel profond (110 objets du catalogue Messier et 109 du catalogue Caldwell).

Outstanding! So much fun! I was a navigator by trade more than 40 years ago. I learned to navigate military aircraft anywhere on the globe using just the stars and planets. Three star night celestial was my favorite and this app brings back many many fond memories and is so much fun. We had to learn to identify the stars by memory, this app and an iPad would have been a wonderful tool! Keep up the improvements.

Used it in the garden on a clear night - breathtaking. Even the image of the Moon was perfectly correct. Very very clever and makes great use of the iPad's size and relative stability.

Good App for amateur astronomers. Would like to see Sun/Moon rise/set time.

Know nothing about stars but brill tool to learn
By: Captorian - 14-Sep-2008
The accelerometer integrates beautifully. Works well as overhead chart as well as zoomed in. Good sized database of objects. Just what I was looking for!!!
One of my favorite apps.
By: iPhoneLoverG - Feb 5, 2011
I have had it for years, and it always gets better. Completely love the app. Works really snappy on iPhone 4. Puts the debate to rest on what it is in the sky that you are looking at.
