About MicroSky

MicroSky is a freeware planetarium for mobile/cell phones with Java-support and a connection to the internet (preferable GPRS or UMTS ). It is a J2ME-Midlet client/server application which can display 2.500.000 stars, 8.000 deep sky objects, the constellations, the planets, local horizon and registered comets. With various functions and settings i.e. observer location, date, eyepiece etc. you can adjust the NightSky to your individual needs. The GPRS connection to the server enables this powerful midlet to be as small as 27 kb and run on low profiled devices.

Just tried it out, very very cool.. Although I had to replace the DNS name of the server with the IP address to get it to work..

Kinda weird, but it's a cool app!

That's hot, that'll help my nights where I go out in the scope ;). Now my question, if I go here on my BB, which do I download, the jad or jar?

edit: nevermind, found out myself via their webpage ;)

Default Wow! What a great find.

This is the link I found at the website that works for my 7280

http://www.upto.org/microsky/blackberry/

I just downloaded the jar file OTA, then went back and registered for the free logon.

Wow! What a great find.

Okay, I'm going to resurrect this thread because I still can't get MicroSky to work.

This is the message I get when I try to connect (using BB 7130e, Verizon, BES)

Step 1:Could not connnect Welcome to www.upto.org RC=503

Any thoughts?

I have had Micro sky now for a couple months. I use it to entertain my nephews and nieces. Works really well on the 8700. And if you are having problems, you may need to set your APN. For tmo it is wap.voicestream.com. Leave the user name and password blank. For other carriers you will need to search for the TCP setting. Sorry don't know those off the top of my head.

To bad it doesn't support GPS on the BB. That would be really cool.
