Did you know that there are at least 6 galaxies that can be seen with the naked eye? Do you want to know where to look for them?

In this catalogue of 112 deep sky objects over 35 can be seen with out the use of a telescope or binoculars!

Just scroll to an object of your choosing and tap "Locate".
The location data will be sent to your Google Sky Map application which will show you the location of that object in the sky!

For beginners to professionals, this app makes finding all the brightest galaxies, nebulae and star clusters as easy as one tap of a button!

Listed with each object is its brightness in magnitude and what the minimum optical gear is necessary to view it.

All you need is a dark, clear sky and a passion for Astronomy! :D

Optional: To view the wikipedia page for each object an active internet connection is required.
To use the "Locate" feature Google Sky Map (free) is required.

    Every time I click on anything higher than M3 the app crashes. Waste of $1.29. Where's the refund button or fix this immediately.

    Did not work well, shows you where to look, but no galaxy on the screen. Also, you can only select limited details on a few of the stars displayed. Pretty pictures, but only a few minutes of entertainment.
