The ESO has taken full advantage of the third generation iPad’s display and quad core graphics to enjoy ESO’s best views of the Universe. Vito Technology Inc.® has rebuilt the popular stargazing guide Star Walk for the new iPad with new superior graphics and content. Using astronomical images from the European Southern Observatory (ESO) and ESA/HUBBLE, the Picture of the Day section of the app brings high-resolution pictures of star clusters, Messier and other astronomical objects.

The Star Walk app delivers the ultimate cutting-edge experience to present-day astronomers, students and night-sky fans by allowing users to easily locate and identify 20 000+ objects in the night sky. The 360-degree, Multi-Touch star map displays 3D spinning models of constellations, stars, planets, satellites and galaxies currently overhead from anywhere on Earth.

With the latest update, users can enjoy unprecedented graphics and interactivity, achieved with the iSight camera and Retina display on the new iPad.
