What is it about?

Why this Star finder app rather than the numerous other ones available? Astrovisuals has over 15 years' experience producing the "Star Disc", a physical Planisphere that is easy to use, clear, uncluttered and pleasing on the eye. We have now created an app based on that design. The result is an app that is beautiful to look at, but that also provides a practical guide to the appearance of the night sky. And no mythical animal pictures for the constellations!
