SkEye aims to be an advanced planetarium that can also be used as a PUSHTO guide for telescopes.The handheld-mode is similar to Google SkyMap. You can explore stars, constellations and deep sky objects from the Messier and NGC catalogs.When switched to indirect-mode it doubles as a PUSHTO guide for telescopes. The PUSHTO system uses the phone's sensors alone. All you need to do is strap the phone onto the telescope's OTA. _______________ Ensure that you calibrate the magnetic sensors by waving the phone in a figure-8 motion of your hands.
