I can open ES and can move the mount but none of the database objects are in the app.
Hi John,

I am sorry you are having issues getting ExploreStars to work on your Android device. I assume that you used this page to download the database file:

Please note that the ExploreStars folder copied to the root of the SD card contains not only the images folder but also the file "ExploreStars.sqlite" that is the file your device is looking for. First, verify that file is there, and then you need to make sure (Step 3 in the procedure) that under the application permissions (under settings) that you give the ExploreStars app permission to access your external storage (SD card).  

It should work for you if you have done these steps.
