Is Starry Night 8 Compatible With Windows 11? (Answer: Yes, Read On!)

Hi,

I'm running SN8 Pro on my Windows 10 laptop and all is good. Is it safe to upgrade to Windows 11 yet?

    Running Windows 11 and Starry Night Pro Plus without any difficulties (other than the missing Sky Guide - which seems to happen in Windows 10 as well, so no difference there). So -- the coast is clear, Anthony. : )

    Starry Night 8 is Windows 11 compliant.

    However, nuances exist in and among new operating systems and their updates which may cause unforeseen problems with software applications including Starry Night.

    If you have saved any settings, observations or favorites files, be sure to back them up before migrating to the new OS.

    Please also consider our LiveSky portal to sync your data across all of your devices. It will be useful for saving backed up data.

    Thank you both. I just upgraded to Windows 11 and tested SN8 Pro with my telescope and all seems to be working just fine, including Sky Guide.
