Hello, I have the pro version.
Why don't I have the "preview images" of objects? (for example: IC1396, SH2-129, SH2-155, ...)?
Did I miss an update? Or it does not exist, which would be a shame for paid software, while others free display them.
The macOS version is a port of the iOS version. SkySafari is a mobile first app. The total app size must be manageable for mobile devices. Currently, the total file size is 1.3 GB. If we had a built-in image for every deep sky object in our database the app would probably double or triple in size. That is too big for many mobile devices.
However, we can consider adding more images for SS7.
Thanks for your feedback!
Please create a list of (missing) images you would like to see included, and post the list in our community forum here:

You could start by just adding the same images you used to have in SS6. At the moment it just looks like broken links, and public outreach is not practical.
I have downgraded to SS6 and told everyone I normally recommend to use Sky Safari that they should buy SS6 and give SS7 a miss until all the issues are fixed.
