Sort Comets by Magnitude in SkySafari

 It would be nice to sort Comets by Magnitude as having such a long list even though they are highlighted as visible with magnitudes of 20, 30 and so on they are not visible to most amateur astronomers.


If we could sort by magnitude then the brightest would float to the top and make selecting or deciding on what to observe would be so much easier.

    You can already do this.  Tap the Settings item at the top of the Comets list and choose to sort by "Visual Magnitude".  Please note that the magnitudes are predictions based on the comet's distance, size and albedo.  They are not based upon observations and can be off by several magnitudes at times.
