Night AR

If you are a night photographer, you are going to love it. Plan your night shots in situ and adjust your frame for the best composition before you shoot. All the night information you need relative to your current location. You will be able to visualize in augmented reality for the current date and time: milky way, celestial equator, Polaris, north/south celestial pole, circumpolar stars path and sense of rotation, moon position, moon path, moonrise/set directions, right ascension and declinations lines.

AR view

  1. AR information

    • Milky way 
    • Celestial equator 
    • Moon path 
    • Horizon 
    • Right ascension and declination lines 
    • North celestial pole
    • South celestial pole

TIPS

  • Stars that are moving show you the sense of rotation about the celestial poles.
  • Make sure you are away from any electronic device or magnetic field because they may interfere with the sensors of the device. It is recommended to wait a few seconds to let the system become stable.
  • Quality of the information displayed in the AR view is good enough to work, but it strongly depends on the limitations of the sensors of your device (GPS, Accelerometer, Gyroscope). This is an issue we cannot control but, as technology advances, manufacturers improve the quality of sensors too.
  • iPod Touch users: the iPod Touch does not have magnetometer. Therefore, it is not possible to draw in augmeted reality (AR) the information of the sun, moon, milky way, celestial ecuator and celestial poles. This is the reason the AR is not available.
