Re: APCC fast what if
I use sky safari in AR mode (augmented reality) where it uses the phone camera to show the physical scene overlayed with the star map. I just hold the phone where the telescope is setup, and point the camera to area of the sky I’m interested in…toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Then I fast-forward the time selector to see when the object is occulted but trees (in my case).
I never thought I’d have a use for that AR button in SkySafari… but this is it… daytime planning with limited horizons.
Here’s a pic of a tree blocking Polaris that I used to show the tree trimmers what needed trimming. The sky chart is dimmed heavily here because I didn’t want to confuse the tree trimmers, but still wanted a reference. The opacity is adjustable.
