It gives a nice overview of the solar system, the stars and some galaxies. I could have done without the astrological stuff but if it fits in the app, I don't mind.

I've had this for a while now. It's a good educational tool. Good for star parties. The kids can pick out an object in the sky , then we can find out what it is , how far away, and more. It helps explain why the object moves in the telescope. In one view it is demonstrated very well as the object moves across the screen, while the coordinates tick away in real time. Be ready to start tracking with your mouse when you zoom in because it moves out of view pretty quick. The more zoom the faster it moves, just like in a real scope. Get this app. Have fun.
