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!

•Calculates the magnification, F ratio and field of view for a particular telescope / eyepiece combination.
