New App Lets You Photograph Space From Your iPad

Slooh Space Camera iPad app


What a power trip!

Slooh, a company known for its helpful live feeds of awesome astronomical events, has just released a fun, free iPad app that gives regular folk command of robotic space cameras around the world.

For $1.99 per “mission,” you can snap real-color photos of celestial objects, using the app’s heads-up display to aim one of the cameras in Slooh’s network. Within 20 minutes, you’ll have your own high-quality image of space, stamped with the date, time, and name of the observatory.

You can eventually fill out the app’s interactive sky chart with your own photographs of planets, galaxies, and nebulae. Missions are updated weekly, and the company’s celestial live feeds are integrated into the app. According to Slooh, Android and iPhone versions are in the works as well.

See a video demo of the app below:
