ST4 availability
#21
Owen,

As much as I too am saddened by the delay for visual, I have to admit the primary 'buyer' these days of astronomical hardware and software is skewed to imagers. If they are the buyers, then intentional or not, Greg's focus on the product that will likely drive more initial sales makes sense. I get that and hold no grudge. I'd probably do the same thing. I have to be honest, SkyTools 3 still works great for visual. Are there little things here or there that v4 will bring to the table? Sure, but I'm still planning and logging sessions. Do I want to wait a few weeks to months, not really but I can.  It's just like SkySafari 6 being released on iOS about 6 months ago and still no date for Android. I'm and Android user to I have to wait. Will I buy SS6, who knows. SS5 works.

The problem is, I'd like to say I'll vote with my wallet and not buy SS6 or ST4 when they are released but the fact is all that does is tell the developer that their product maybe isn't that important and that could result in an even longer for the next version.

I appreciate the work Greg has put in over the years and his product has served me well so there is no question I'll happily pony up to move to ST4 visual when the time comes.  In the mean time I'll use what I have because for my use cases, its still the best tool.
