SkySafari Pro 1.7.3
SkySafari Pro is for the obsessed kind of observer that wants it all. It contains over 15.3 million stars from the Hubble Guide Star catalog, plus 740,000 galaxies down to 18th magnitude, and over 550,000 solar system objects – including every comet and asteroid ever discovered. Yet it runs just as quickly and smoothly as the basic version.


Version 1.7.3:

  • Fixed many small accuracy problems in importing orbit data from the Minor Planet Center. Orbital elements are now stored to 64 bits of precision.
  • Fixed failure to draw many bright stars when the magnitude limit was set below 3.
  • Object Info for satellites now shows satellite latitude, longitude, altitude, and velocity.
