Sky Safari Pro version some stars of mag 14+ missing around bright stars

When I compare the sky safari pro sky chart with digital sky survey images I have noticed that many stars of magnitude 14+ to 16 are missing in SSP data base. Is that normal or my settings are wrong? I do have settings for the star magnitude set to maximum.

    The Guide Star Catalog (GSC) often misses dimmer stars near bright stars.  It is not a SkySafari error, just the way the catalog is done.  In SkySafari 6 we are switching to using the UCAC5 catalog.  I think it will be better in this respect.
