Frederic in Support Rocks!

The app is awesome but I had some trouble getting it installed. Apple was of NO help and referred me to the developer. Thanks for passing that off, Apple. Frederic answered my email immediately (even on a Saturday night) and helped me figure out what Apple should have. It had nothing to do with the software. Kudos to Frederic. I really look forward to playing with the software and as my husband and I are beginners, This app will definately help us get our telescope aligned.
