Abstract

The recent explosion of the smartphone market has opened up a world of technological possibilities which hitherto would have required significant investment in hardware from the end-user. StarGaze aims to integrate several of these technologies in order to make the night sky more accessible to all.

The StarGaze mobile application is about providing amateur astronomy enthusiasts with a low cost, mobile, effective tool which will enable them to leverage existing technologies from their handset device to greatly increase the efficiency of their astronomical efforts. In addition to current astronomy enthusiasts it is my hope that the intuitive and attractive interface will attract newcomers to the hobby.

It is my intention to develop this application for use on Google’s Android operating system. If completed successfully, I believe it will address a gap that currently exists in the market and would attract significant interest from a cohort of users who are willing to pay for services which they are confident will be of a high quality.
