StarLog© 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 even add voice recordings! You can enter all your astronomical gear, even filters and barlow lenses.

To make sure you don't ruin your night vision, StarLog© 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© can export all your observations in the OpenAstronomyLog format (OAL 2.0), for maximum compatibility with your other astronomical software. Support for exporting to DeepSkyLog.be is built into StarLog© 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© as painless as possible, you can import observations and instruments from apps like 'Stargazing Log' and 'FOViewer (full or trial)'.

    Having all my observations in one place is great. The voice recording feature really speeds up observations. List management is great for pre-planing. Support is great!

    I need to say that the simulated view of Saturn is not the real view that I see through my telescope. In the application it appears much smaller. Otherwise it's great!

    A great stargazing app that helps me log all my observations quickly without the need to scrabble for a pen and paper in the dark. Excellent FOV previews of objects with the ability to add your own scopes, EP's. A very well thought out app and beats it's

    Really like this app... lots of nice features. Especially like that I can import my equipment list directly from FOViewer. Super nice touch on having the app only close via the home button, no accidentally backing out via the back button.
