This looks like an interesting application, and I would love to use it. However, the next solar eclipse where I am isn't until October 23, 2014. Could you please do something about this? Thanks.

I hope your tongue was in your cheek.


Yes we need more eclipses. I propose one solar eclipse in even numbered years and one lunar eclipse in odd numbered years for maximum viewing enjoyment.


I don't understand why developers release apps like this without first addressing such problems. If I had released this app I would have made a simple scheduling module so that each user could schedule their own solar eclipse to occur at their convenience! I think everyone who has read the description for this app deserves a refund till a solar scheduling module is added!

Seriously though it looks like a pretty neat app.

Maybe you need a paid version to set up your own eclipses. The premium version will probably look into your iCal and find a day suitable for you.

With this release I can now connect my D300s and use the live view on the computer screen to help focusing.

The PDF export is great to show the eclipse map to friends.
