Why Does The SkyView Get Weird When Using SkySafari In An Airplane At 10KM Altitude? (Answer: We Do Not Know)

I tried running SkySafari 6 Pro, ver, at an altitude of 10km and the translucent horizon starts displaying as an odd gray polygon with sky above and below.  When on commercial flights at night the typical passenger window is so small that having a display such as SkySafari becomes very important for identifying objects.

    Hi Will, 

    As I replied elsewhere, SkySafari is developed for Earth-based observing and telescope control.  Use in airplanes is a very edge-case scenario that we are not going to troubleshoot.  

    Thanks for your report nonetheless.
