You've heard so many times about Sirius or Vega, or the Pleiades or Hyades, or M31 Andromeda Galaxy, or the Gemini constellation, but you were never able to find them in the sky or it's been always taking you a lot of time? Now it's as easy as one tap!

StarFinder Pro for Symbian StarFinder Pro for Symbian

This version of StarFinder supports all 88 constellations, 72 brightest stars, 21 brightest Messier objects (all visible with the naked eye, i.e. up to +6th apparent magnitude), 20 most popular asterisms, and 26 meteor shower radiants. For each object useful astronomical information is provided, such as coordinates (right ascension and declination), constellation, Bayer/Messier/NGC designation, distance from Earth, apparent and absolute magnitude, visibility (latitudes at which the object can be seen), occurence and intensity (in case of meteor showers), and also a short description and a direct one-tap link to related Mobile Wikipedia article, should you need more details.

The application will be updated regularly with additional stars, meteor shower radiants, all 110 Messier objects, and with tracking of Solar System objects (all planets, the Sun and the Moon). In one of the next versions an option to add custom objects by the user will also be added.

Supports both GPS and manually entered geographic coordinates. Uses magnetometer sensor and orientation sensor along with precise calculation algorithm to track positions of sky objects for any geographic location at any time.

Includes magnetometer sensor calibration screen. Designed to save battery life - pauses calculations when the user switches to other screens, slows down timers by 10 times when the app is in the background.
