The only exceptions to this are the SOHO solar images and NGC/IC, Messier, Caldwell and Binary star images and weather forecast which are loaded dynamically, as well as the refreshing of satellite, comet and near-earth asteroid data.

Night mode turns the display red for night observations without having to ruin your night vision. The Sky Map makes use of the direction sensors of the device to show the sky above (or below you).
