Starmap is an excellent program for viewing the night sky, and is recommended for its huge searchable database of over 2.5 million stars, over 13,000 deep sky objects like galaxies and nebulae, 475,000 asteroids, a Tycho 2 catalog, and much, much more. Starmap HD is the iPad version and is the ultimate version to have as it expands the screen space, has crisper and cleaner graphics, and everything just looks and feels better. The learning curve and price is a little steep for the casual observer, however.
