StarLog© Free allows you to log your astronomical observations in the field, right there behind your telescope while you are looking at the object. You no longer need to jot down a few short scribbles on damp paper by the dim light of a red flashlight. You can just log your observations directly on your Android device!
You simply specify which object you are looking at, which telescope and eyepiece you are using, and a simple tap on a button brings you to a prefilled form to log your observation.
You can enter all your astronomical gear, even filters and barlow lenses.

To make sure you don't ruin your night vision, StarLog© Free features a night vision mode that turns the whole interface red, including the keyboard and all pop-up windows! You can even turn the brightness of the app down to a comfortable level.

You can full-text search through all your observations and sort them in various ways. StarLog© Free can export 5 of your observations in the OpenAstronomyLog format (OAL 2.0), for maximum compatibility with your other astronomical software. Support for exporting 5 observations to DeepSkyLog.be is built into StarLog© Free by default. Deepskylog is very popular in Europe. To make it easier to discuss your observations with others, StarLog allows you to make a screenshot of the observation, so that you can post it on forums or include it in e-mails.

To make your transition to StarLog© Free as painless as possible, you can import 5 observations and instruments from apps like 'Stargazing Log' and 'FOViewer (full or trial)'.

Limitations compared to the full version of StarLog©:
- No search option for objects.

Recently changed in this version

- Fixed the crashing issues with "ics_button" message.
- Fixed the planetary data retrieval. The USNO changed the webservice that StarLog was relying on. Unfortunatly, the USNO websites are often down lately (cyber attacks?), so despite the fix StarLog might still complain about the planetary data every now and then.

    This app is excellent. Unfortunately the free version is ad supported so night-mode isn't very useful, but full version is only $1.99.
