"This app is simple to learn, has a beautiful appearance, and just plain works effortlessly right out of the box. This program is an observer's dream and excels at field use, but is equally at home on the living room couch. I especially like the seamless integration of photos and information without too many nested panes. Most everything is just one click or quick key away. Perhaps the most telling testimony to this app's ease of use and tremendous feature set is the way people instantly become productive with it, regardless of ability or experience - many walk away sadly lamenting the fact it is not available for Windows. If you are a Mac user and an astronomer you owe it to yourself to try this software today."

"I've used a lot of planetarium and scope control software over the years. SkySafari Plus is outstanding. Very easy to use, comprehensive cross-referenced databases, superb graphics, good telescope control, and excellent customer support. The developers are first rate; continuously adding functionality and responding to user input. What more could you ask for? Now that SkySafari Plus is on my MacBook Pro, I've removed all the "other" planetarium software from other vendors. This is as good as it gets in my opinion and at a cost that is much lower than you'd expect."

Spaceflight has never been so easy! SkySafari's intermediate version adds a hugely expanded database, wired or wireless telescope control - and the ability to fly into orbit around other objects in our Solar System - to the basic version. SkySafari Plus shows you 2.5 million stars, and 31,000 deep sky objects - including the entire NGC/IC catalog. It shows the Solar System's major planets and moons using NASA spacecraft imagery, and includes over 4,000 asteroids, comets, and satellites with updateable orbits.
SkySafari Plus and Pro can point your GoTo or "Push-To" telescope anywhere in the sky, using either:
Connected by either of these methods, SkySafari Plus and Pro can control the following GoTo telescopes:
