Another hello from Oz
« on: December 25, 2012, 02:14:08 PM »
Hi,
My N7 32GB is in the mail so I'm learning as much as I can in advance of receiving it!
I'm primarily aiming to use my N7 for astronomy, specifically with Sky Safari and Skyeye for  'push to' guidance of my telescope; hopefully it will be successful and therefore save a lot of money on commercial systems.
I also do a lot of walking so the GPS feature with Google maps (offline) and other mapping apps will be useful.
I'm anticipating that I will learn an awful lot form everyone on this forum.
Here's hoping we all have a very productive 2013 !
Cheers
Chris

Welcome Chrispy!   I use my N7 with Google Sky Map and love it.  I think you'll be our resident astronomy expert here on the forum before long!

Hello mate,

I have a thread on my astronomy-optimized Nexus 7 somewhere on this site. I have red navigation bar buttons & a red keyboard to use with Sky Safari. I run it on my 8gb N7.

I've done some southern sky astronomy in SA, NSW, & Peru.

I'm not the lowest of the low, but I am the slowest of the slow (49.6 mpg over 38k miles in  Scion xB)

Hello, I've been following your thread on CloudyNights, I'll get the N7 rooted then I'll try some of your tricks!

Cheers
