Lunar Discoverer's SkyMatch™

These are screen images, reduced in size and quality from that actually used in the software,
so you can compare them (and to speed page loading for slower web connections)


You don't have to turn your head anymore!

SkyMatch™ matches the appearance of the Moon to follow it as it is seen in sky at the local time being viewed.
SkyMatch™ tilts the North-South axis of the Moon to match how it appears in sky.

With this powerful feature and our Scope-View™, you can see the Moon in your eyepiece
just as it appears in your telescope, regardless of the telescope type and orientation!

It doesn't matter if you have
  • a Dobsonian,
  • an Equatorial,
  • a Refractor,
  • a SCT (Schmidt-Cassegrain),
  • a Newtonain Reflector,
  • or any other exotic compound telescope optics...
  • with or without an inverting diagonal

  • We have the ALL covered!!
