Re: Explore Stars Android App in mobiles phones: Samsung S10 #Android

Tyler,

My Huawei tablet (an 8.4" Mediapad M5) works with Explore Stars. All that needs to be done is to change a display setting.  Go to Settings - Display - View Mode - set to SMALL by tapping the "-" symbol (Default is the standard setting). I suspect that this will work with the 10" Huawei too.

I find it awkward with a tablet but am making slow progress. Every time I go out, I make a step forward. I have along the way tried using Cartes du Ciel using a laptop and serial cable link, again it's a learning curve. More stuff to learn. But, I was out tonight with a tablet and still making progress. I'm at the point now where I am  about to see if I can get tracking to work. No doubt the first photos will show trails and it will be back to improving on all the previous steps required. I am sure my progress is hindered by lack of knowledge and lack of practice. But, I agree, trying to use a tablet to move the scope to the right point isn't easy. I think I might try using a serial cable and a games controller. It sits better in the hand and you can look at the scope whilst you use it.10" tablets are like handling a bar of soap.

Sizing displays across multiple devices is a real challenge for developers.  HTML designs have enough trouble across different browsers and screen sizes. On mobile the layout of the product needs to be handled differently then anything that designed for desktop.   This is alot of work and might have to be done multiple times in different development environments and code sets to make it compatible in different ecosystems.

I've tried to install this app on a 10 inch Samsung tablet and it has the same layout as the picture above, about 1/4th of the right side is cut off.

The heart of the Soul Nebula (IC1848)

It wa s a cold night on Jon Wood Astronomy Field, about an hour east of Atlanta, but the company was good and the skies were stable and clear. This was the first run at it and represents the hydrogen-alpha channel. I uploaded another version of this image without stars. Starnet++ is quite good at making star masks but my MacBook Pro turns into a space heater!  Imaged with an ED-127CF FCD100 telescope, an ES PMC-Eight G-11 mount, and a ZWO ASI-1600MM-Cool camera with an EFW8 Filter Wheel.  I still need to get flats and darks calibrated and a few frames with oblong stars need to be tossed out, but the initial results are very pleasing to the eye.

Hi Manuel,

thank you. Glad you like it. :-)

The image was captured with no filters, just the Canon 7D Mk2. To be honest I was a little bit surprised how the colors came out, but i liked it. Not sure how that color shift happend.

With my 6D it is similar to your image which is more what the colors really look like ;-)

Greetings Andy

Hi,

Just to add my two cents, I too use the i-EXOS 100 with the fine AZ adjuster on the EQ5 mount.

It has made a world of difference, works flawlessly 
and fits perfectly. Now it’s a joy to use the mount.

happy to add pictures, if needed.

Thanks Harry.  Wish I was in Vero though.  It was 25 degrees last night but beautiful clear skies and calm winds.  I’m shooting under Bortles 6ish skies in North Ogden Utah with an Optolong L-enhance light pollution dual band pass filter.  Makes quite a difference in the pics.

Have a good one!

Jeff
