    Not sure how to hold iphone4 for use with Star Tracker. Start Tracker givs different pictures depending on how it is being held. When it says “point iphone at sky,” which end of the iphone should be pointed? The flat part? The edge? I wish there was a video of using it!”

    I am really impressed with the fluidity of movement of Star Tracker HD on my iPad 2, but I had a few questions:

    1. Can I turn off the auto-zoom, and just choose a zoom level? When I hold still, it auto-zooms in so far that I can’t see the entire constellation.

    2. Can I zoom out farther? Some constellation are larger than the screen.

    3. Can I turn off the Milky Way visual?

    4. How do I de-select an item in the Search function? Once found, I no longer want the arrow pointing to it. (There is no “None of the above” option.)

    5.  Can I change the date WITHOUT changing the time (e.g. 10pm on sequential nights)?

    Many thanks for this great app. I will be recommending to my friends, for sure!
