MacVoicesTV #1049: MacVoicesTV at Macworld – Carina Software’s SkyVoyager and SkyFi Put Astronomy and Telescope Control on Your iPhone
In the Carina Software booth at Macworld 2010, Tim Debenedictis talks about the history of their astronomy software, Voyager, and how it has gone mobile as an iPhone app, SkyVoyager. The GPS and compass functions of the iPhone make it perfect for orienting yourself for nighttime observations, and SkyVoyager takes full advantage of that, providing a sky map of what is overhead from any position. Want more? SkyVoyager allows you to control your telescope from your iPhone via their SkyFi WiFi interface, access information about stellar objects and more.
The audio-only version of this show is available on MacVoices #1059.
