Clean, elegant interface at a fair price, tutorial videos at website - I have used the free software that came with my Dobsonian scope for about 2 years. While it certainly is feature laden, I found myself resetting things often and didn't find the interface Mac-like. This software seems to strike a good balance between features and ease of use. The tutorial videos for the Pro version was extremely helpful. Sometimes if you have not used program for a while it i nice to have a video tutorial section to refer to. I seriously considered another product since I had their app on my iPad. That company seems to conceal the price for their software on their website so they lost that sale. Another company is all about glitz and upgrades...nah to that as well. When you compare prices there is no comparison (unless you get something free yet not as polished). This is a mature while not feature-bloated app. I can't say anything about the scope control aspects of the program and I don't see myself doing any imaging (watch the tutorials).
