  1. I like the apps that you suggested for the android but one that I did not see mentioned and is in my opinion one of the best is sky safari 3. This app will allow you to control your telescope; zoom in on millions of objects and gives information on them as well. Not only will this app allow you to do that but you can also see events ‘simulated’ as well.

  2. I absolutely like your blog and find the majority of your post’s to be exactly I’m looking for. Would you offer guest writers to write content for yourself? I wouldn’t mind producing a post or elaborating on a number of the subjects you write related to here. Again, awesome blog!We stumbled over here from a different website and thought I may as well check things out. I like what I see so i am just following you. Look forward to looking into your web page again.In regards to writing an article, in what way did you convey your thoughts into writing? Thank You for any info. Your posting is appreciated.
