Great star app Its extremely user friendly Easy to use The gps uses your co ords to provide accurate charts for your location Tons of custom options for ease of use Any object you can think of will be in this app You can click on any object for more info about it Theres also a search mode I personally like that I can advance the clock to see what times a certain object will rise useful in winter weather highly recommend this for anyone interested in or practicing astronomy                     Sphinx Sevenfour
I have a Celestron Evolution 8 telescope and syncing my telescope with this app is easy First connect the android device to the wifi on the telescope then perform the alignment process through the app It takes me typically about 5 to 10 minutes to complete Once completed tap any item on the android device phone or tablet that you wish to see and click goto The telescope will move to the proper position to allow viewing This app is like having a personal guide to the stars                     Stephen Fleeger
The three star alignment system on this app is nearly useless The two star and three star on the hand controller of the scope works perfectly so it has to be this mess     Richard Danley
Sad that app has no calibration for device App is approximately 95 degrees out and constantly freezing Will not follow say when I move device I m using Samsung Galaxy S8 Thers no way I want to link it to my NexStar 6SE     Me You
THE BEST APP OF ALL TIME THIS APP IS UNBELIEVABLE THE TIME EFFORT AND HARD WORK THAT HAS GONE INTO THIS IS CRAZY I LOVE THIS APP THE DEVELOPERS ARE WONDERFUL PEOPLE IT S FREE THE DETAIL IS AMAZING BECAUSE I CAN FIND ALL THE STARS THAT I CAN SEE WITH MY TELESCOPE AND LEARN ALL ABOUT THEM I ALSO SEE LOADS OF SATELLITES ORBITING EARTH AND I CAN LEARN ABOUT THEM THANKS TO THE UNFATHOMABLE DEPTHS OF QUALITY INFORMATION IN THE DESCRIPTION TAB I LOVE SKY PORTAL GOD BLESS YOU FOR MAKING MY LIF                     N W
App is good but align mentioned is a huge issue if I seem to align by moon only 3 times I can get successful but on stars very very rarely Kinda disappointing as I like astro fi 130 telescope and did spend good money on it     Jason Egervari
Will not connect to my cosmos 90gt and Ive had enough Spent 2 days trying every combination I could try Putting the scope on ebay and deleting the app Next telescope will be fully manual no apps needed     stephen a
For putting the disconnect button next to the goto button you lose 2 stars If I find I like everything else I might come back and give you back one star And unlike the other buttons that ask if you want to follow through with the command the disconnect button immediately trash your alignment and disconnects from the Wi Fi That was a complete boneheaded mistake Harry             Peter S
Very nice informative and easy to Use Thank You I Love My Sky Portal App                     Mohamad Said
Very convenient for smartphone use No software issues of any kind while operating on my Elephone soldier It has a good platform for further expansion of its star databases Hope that more upgrades will be done to the software Thanks for the application                     Shavarsh Khachatryan
Infuriatingly unusable I just spent 1 5 hours outside trying to align my Nexstar Evo 6 The app kept freezing or locking the scope in a slew I could not stop The one time I did manage to align on 3 stars it told me that alignment had failed presumably because of the app hanging up half way through Ended up putting the scope away angry     Trent Corbett
I love this app I m only giving it 1 star because you need wifi for the initial download of extra content I have unlimited data just let me download whatever you want me too without wifi If this changes you get 5 stars easy     A Google user
I would take the 1 star off God this is total rubbish will not work at all just says cant connect     A Google user
I had the one version of it Star wars and Starthese are the my apps and no provisions at all but even though gets up in a previous pro versions                 Yenji Jem
Excellent application for my phone Only needs a manual that can be printed                     Noj Lekrem
App worked great and as soon as i bought a new phone it wont even load we purchased the expensive upgrade and lost it all to date no reply to get it nack so there either out of business or just done have the quality service they claim         Steve Phillips
Very good It seems to replace the old little machine SkyScout also by Celestron It does lack a way of selecting or changing the type of Mount Azimuthal Equatorial It would also be nice to be able to have more options when selecting the landscape and projection types The horizon always curves Convex Concave which is annoying The perspective view will eliminate this definitely                 Mingo Fito
Most of the time fails to connect If not it doesn t align afterwards         RocketSimplicity
Works fine with my nex evo 8 but the app is freezing a lot stops responding many times I used a 6gb ram Huawei sold it and got a new 8gb ram mobile still having the same issues         Ahmad Isa
Great app But unfortunately buggy when connected to the mount It seems to stutter while waiting on the WiFi signal response from the telescope mount The whole experience of controlling the GoTo mount from this app is dramatically better than without it I just hope they fix the bugs soon                 Andrew Sc
Love the app Always amazes my friends family when I point my phone to the sky                     Myk Hydro
the app constantly crashes after connecting to the telescope or moving the telescope and then the telescope is stuck in that direction of movement and have to disconnect the power to the telescope really frustrating     Jaccob White
Constantly hangs on alignment with my s8 and my 9 25 It used to work fine     Emilio Garcia
This app is NOT ready for prime time Crashes constantly You ll most likely end up using the PC software download that comes with the telescope     D M
good but blotchy Needs ability to replace a calibration star             gepronger
Easy to use my galaxy tab to run my Celestron Nexstar Evo 8 telescope Very easy to polar align                     Wendy Querin
Great app It was easy to use had lots of content and it even helped me find two messier objects in a relatively short time in a sky brightly lit by light pollution Not bad considering that I m an ametur that has just started out                     AlienCreature i
can be temperamental with connection staying connected and app freezes often Decent enough app as a stand alone but when using connected to telescope it helps to have fingers crossed it also is poor at alignment telling me the telescope is facing wrong way when it is not         Mr. D.
i like it lightweight enough for casual obseever and works great wirh SkyQ Link Hopefully there are plans to add Motorized Focuser controls to this Any insight Celestron                 Dez Lee
Cannot align no matter how hard I try I ve been trying for days but it constantly fails on second star alignment maybe I m doing something wrong but after a couple hours a night just trying to align I ve given up     Daniel Porter
Brilliant app which is very easy to use The inclusion of audio files is a great addition which means you can listen along to the short commentary whilst observing Also the ability to preview the best selection of astronomy sights available for that night is a great feature                     Mark Robinson
Started to give no stars but changed my mind Tried my current cell phone and tablet and neither would work with Skyportal Had extra ZTE phone and tried it and works flawlessly on Skyportal Happy I have it to use Now to find flawless tablet that will work                     C.F. Texas USA
Best app for the night sky so far Lots of info and audio content With history background to many objects                     Ifty Khan
The star chart is very good but I am not able to connect to my telescope with synscan wifi adapter Developers pls help The app just won t connect neither through the direct mode nor by access point Should have more options to wifi connection like selecting the wifi said and all             A Google user
App worked before I updated my Google Pixel 2 Now unfortunately it doesn t Phone can t connect to the app Good that I keept my old phone Samsung Galaxy S 5 that works fine if not the new teleskope worth 600 will be completely useless Any chance to fix a problem and will I be able to use my new phone with that app         A Google user
