    No ar mode support on nook color, kind of defeats the purpose of this app.

    I wish I knew...

    I wish I knew if this app was as good as described by others. Although I have a Nook Tablet with plenty of free memory, it will not install. It acts as if it is installing and then when the gree bar is complete I get an error message telling me the app will not install - " archive, then unarchive and try installing again". Friendly advice -- wish it worked. Have tried 20+ tunes to no avail...

    What is AR mode? Because I can not get this to show me real time

    What is AR mode? Because I can not get this to show me real time sky views. Is this not designed for real time viewing? And is this because it is something about the nook tablet that won't allow for real time viewing? Or is it something I am doing or not doing?

    Awesome app!

    This is a great app for Nook Tablet! It is great for astonomy work in the field when you want accurate positions of stars and close-ups of planets. The red night mode is a nice feature, too. Don't let the low star rating scare you off: this is the best astronomy app around for NT! This app is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Hopefully, there will be a NC release soon.

    Helped find Comet Panstarrs

    We used this app last night when we were looking for comet Panstarrs. Although the comet would not show on the app (too new of a discovery), it was very helpful on getting alignment correct and knowing where to look.

    I like that there is information and being able to go to a planet. It's not Stellarium, but it's close enough for the Nook tablet.
