Too from Sky and Telescope

Some of you might remember this. I have not checked it out but have read up on it. It is not free but I thought I would share it. I like to look at any tools out there that can help us. Take a look at this email they sent me on it.

Watch the little video on it. I like how it measures your sky transparency and darkness value

It also exports to SGP and other platforms for your nights shooting.

Re: Too from Sky and Telescope

Did you see anything about "target"
Rise Time
Transit Time
Set Time

To me these are important indicators of sky planner. These times must of course be "local" so you can plan your night.

I have/had Starry Night and it stopped working on Windows. One of the features I loved was the Rise, Transit, & Set times. It was a great way to plan your target knowing these times.

Re: Too from Sky and Telescope

I'm not sure. Let me check. That is why I liked that DSO Whats in the Sky link I sent yall months back. It shows that transit time and tells you when it peeks and what the magnitude is. It also shows the degree it reaches which is real helpful with my tree situation in the north
