Samsung Phone FOViewer Deluxe HD version1.9 Download

FOViewer Deluxe HD is for TABLET use only!
Try the normal FOViewer Deluxe for your phone.

FOViewer Deluxe HD for your tablet is a handy astronomy tool for every stargazer or astrophotographer. It allows you to calculate things like the magnification of your particular telescope and eyepiece combination. FOViewer Deluxe HD will also show your field of view superimposed on astrophotos of well-known objects. That way you can get a good prediction of which eyepieces to use to optimally view your celestial targets. You can add your own equipment to FOViewer Deluxe HD to get spot-on predictions for your telescope / eyepiece combinations. If a particular telescope / eyepiece combination results in a magnification that goes beyond the maximum useful magnification of your telescope, then FOViewer Deluxe HD will notify you by giving the magnification a red background and showing an alert. There are also a couple of very handy features for astrophotography!

Apart from the magnification, the field of view and the F ratio of your telescope, FOViewer Deluxe HD will show you the local time, your GPS coordinates, the current moonphase, a clear sky clock for your location, a bubble level and a compass to help you get that GOTO telescope properly aligned!

So to summarize, FOViewer Deluxe HD;

• Calculates the magnification, F ratio and field of view for a particular telescope / eyepiece combination.
• Calculates the exit pupil for a particular telescope / eyepiece combination.
• Alerts you when your magnifications goes beyond the maximum useful magnification of your telescope.
• Shows you your field of view as a circle drawn on photos of celestial objects. All objects of the Messier and NGC catalogue are available.
• Shows the field of view of your (CCD/DSLR) camera as a rectangle drawn on photos of celestial objects. All objects of the Messier and NGC catalogue are available.
• Let’s you add and remove your own telescopes, eyepieces, CCD camera's and barlow lenses.
• Shows your local time to help you configure your GOTO telescope.
• Shows your current GPS position.
• Shows you where magnetic north is by means of a compass.
• Shows you the current moonphase.
• Shows you a clear sky clock for your current location.
• Much more!

A few pointers on using FOViewer HD.
• Tap the arrow icons in the top bar to cycle through eyepieces and cameras.
• Tap the arrow icons in the lower bar to cycle through objects in the current catalogue.
• Frequently calibrate your build-in electronic compass by drawing figure 8’s in the air.

moon in For circle ??? I cannot find the moon on the solar system list but it is critical to my observations of Venus at new moon. Luna varies from about 29arcmin to about 34 so about .5 degree so very important in eyepiece selection for a given spotter of 70, 73 or 80mm. Do I fail to see it on the list of objects ? Will you ever feature lunar libration ?

Menu is missing Good app, used it for long time. Upgraded my tablet, now on Android 4.4.2 menu is not accesible, and I cannot edit my gear.

Must have App for astrophotography planning When I first tried this I realized what a great app this was. When doing astrophotography, this app is a absolutely wonderful tool to have for planning a session. I place this right up there with SkySafari Pro in importance! With all my telescopes entered, eyepieces, cameras, and visual aids (barlows and reducers) this will show me exactly what scope to use to get the FOV I desire to the night's session. Just for simple observing it will show what eyepiece to use to get the desired FOV of an object in the app catalog. I VERY highly recommend this for all Astronomers who use Android devices for their sessions, both imaging and observing. Also the developer is very willing to work with you and I had requested the ability to rotate the camera FOV and he did!! Wonderful app and developer! I will ensure I share this with all the Astro forums!

I like it alot Use it before doing my observations and with this i have an idea on how my images would look before i go on the field with extra equipment, with this i know how things might look first hand.
