Description

Find and sort astronomical (NGC/IC) objects in seconds withease.NGC Mate is a simple database application which contains thefull revised New General and Index Catalog of astronomical objects.Its main power is the search and sort capability with which it letsyou find the objects you want to observe. You can make your night'sobserving list in seconds with ease. It contains links to theMessier, Caldwell and Herschel 400 objects as well. As a vividastronomer you can spend more time beside you telescope and let thesearch be done by NGC Mate.In the details page you will getinformation about:• catalog (including Messier, Caldwell andHerschel 400 object numbers)• common name• type and subtype•constellation• RA, Dec• visual magnitude• size and position angle•visibility, and transit timeThe application can also downloadimages of objects (basically areas around coordinates) from theInternet, if you have network access. All downloaded images arestored locally in the device's memory, so a second download ornetwork access is not required, until you wipe the cached imagesfrom the memory.Please have a look at our video tutorial to see howeasy it is to operate the application.

Polar Finder 2.3 APK
TechHead
When astronomical observations or imaging is done using anequatorial telescope mount, the right-ascension (RA) axis should beparallel with the rotation axis of the Earth to avoid star-trailsand errors in guiding. The method how we achieve it is called polaralignment and it starts with a rough alignment of the RA axis. Thebest aid for this is to use a polar finder scope with a reticle. Onthe reticle the Polar star (and the Octant for the Southernhemisphere) is engraved and should be positioned over the realPolaris by turning it. Because the Polaris is not exactly coincidewith the Earth's rotation axis but rotates around it, one shouldknow the exact hour angle of the Polaris to adjust (rotate) thefinder. This utility helps you solve this problem by graphicallyshowing you the current position of the Polaris. The applicationtracks and draws the position of the Polaris (or Octant) inreal-time and also displays its hour-angle, the local sideral time,current local time and the longitude of the place. The longitudecan be entered manually or obtained using the built-in GPS. Theview on the display can be mirrored to match the view in your polarfinder scope. Key features are as follows: • Northern, southernhemispheres • Naked eye, telescopic view • Customizable markerangle • Support for: Astro-Physics, AstroTrac, Ioptron, Losmandy,Skywatcher, StarAdventure, Takahashi and Vixen eyepiece reticles •Precession • Night vision mode • Enter longitude of your placemanually or via built-in GPS Note: On some new devices runningAndroid 4.x the preferences menu can be reached via pressing andholding the Recent Apps Button - which is a ‘soft key’ (not theHome button). On Galaxy Tabs there are three buttons at the bottom.The middle one is the main, hardware button. The task manager isjust on its left side. Press and hold for about two whole secondson it, and then the menu comes up.

MID finder for AIS 1.1 APK
TechHead
This free utility lets you search in the Maritime IdentificationDigit (MID) database by country or by MID number. The utility comesvery handy when you see a ship's Maritime Mobile Service Identity(MMSI) number on the AIS and you want to know which country thegiven vessel is coming from. Or, you want to know the MMSI part ofthe AIS for a given country.Under the first tab you can search fora county, based on its MID number. You can do it by scrolling thelist or searching for it by entering numbers. Scrolling is done byswiping the screen up or down. As the list is scrolled a numbercolumn appears on the right side of the list. If you tap on it andhold it, you can move your finger up and down to quickly jump tothe number under your finger.The second method is to enter digitsinto the search field and let the application reduce the list toonly those countries for which the MID starts with the enterednumber. As you type into the text field the application searchesthe database and displays all countries which has an MID startingwith the numbers you have entered. If there are no countries forthe typed in numbers the list will be empty. As soon as you tap ona list item the MID will be put into the search field and thissingle item will be shown.Any time you can change to the otherrepresentation of the database and start searching for a MID numberby country. To do so, tap on the "By country" tab. The list and thesearch field on this screen behaves the same way as describedabove. The only difference that in this list you search for a MIDnumber by a known country.
