Over the past few weeks I have been involved in beta testing a new app aimed at astronomers. This app, called Double Stars, has been developed by the team at Vertical Turtle (http://www.verticalturtle.co.uk/ - check them out for other apps as well). This app shows you all the double stars in our night skies by using your iPhones GPS, Gyroscopes and Accelerometers to allow you to point your iPhone at your intended target. Try strapping your phone to your scope and use it as an aid to finding your target if you don’t have GoTo - it really works!!
Head over to the app store and check it out, I know I did!!!
