I use it all the time to search for sync and other telescopic sats.  Containing
GSC, it shows all stars visible in my scope, down to mag 13.4.  Though not too
accurate, it's my only source of mag comparisons for faint sats.  It also shows
a mirror image to match my SCT.  I've printed out maps for the whole sky to mag
13.4.  I do like it and recommend it.
