Hi there, great software! I own a ton of astrology apps, and yours is my go-to since its the closest to a horary app out there. Great work!

I just noticed that the fixed star Spica which should be at around 23*58' libra is all over the place. In this chart it was over in Virgo, quite the wandering star! I haven't checked the other fixed stars that I use regularly, but I'm going to go over them now. I'd love to have spica in the right place though.

Thanks!

P.s. a feature I'd love to have is a "new chart" button

Alcyone is wrong, Regulus is wrong, Vindimatrix is wrong...oh crumbs, this is challenging :(

This has been fixed (there was a problem with the precession formula). In the mean time, you can use user fixed points as a work around - just make one for whatever fixed star you want.

I'm dealing with some compatibility issues with a certain forthcoming version of iOS, and will have an update ready once those are addressed

(More accurately, I'm waiting the Apple Developer center to come back online so I can submit the update to the store. On the plus side, the new electional "time dial" tool feature is pretty nice)
