I've been an active SkySafari6 Pro user for a little while, and have been really enjoying the software. I use it for slewing, and gathering data, and have also purchased the available addon's. I noticed that Simulation Curriculum now owns Starry Night, which is also software I've looked at over the years. I never bothered with Starry Night Pro for a couple reasons, one is the cost, the other is that there was a lack of support since at the time, there was no active development. With the release of Starry Night Pro 8, I was excited to see this project rejuvenated, especially by the creators of SkySafari.
My big question is, what is the defining differences between Sky Safari Pro 6, and Starry Night Pro 8? I've noticed that there is plugin support in SNP (such as MaximDL), and it supports Windows, but other than that, what should I know as a SSP6 user about SNP8, and is it worth the ~400%+ increase in cost?
I'm hoping I placed this post in the right thread, as the only threads I see are specific to either one or the other.
