The Photographer's Ephemeris

The Photographer's Ephemeris


The Photographer's Ephemeris (TPE) helps you plan outdoor photography shoots.

TPE is a map-centric sun and moon calculator: see how the light will fall on the land, be it day or night, for almost anywhere on earth.

Ideal for landscape, nature, travel and outdoor photographers, TPE's map-based approach means you can search for any place name on the planet or position the map pin exactly where you want it.

Advanced features include: automatic time zone and elevation detection, correction for atmospheric refraction and height above the horizon. You can even determine when the sun or moon will be visible from behind nearby hills and mountains.

Key features:

- Time and direction of sunrise and sunset
- Time and direction of moonrise and moonset
- Phase of the moon and % illumination
- Times of civil, nautical and astronomical twilight
- Graphical display on a map (Standard, Satellite, Hybrid, Terrain)
- Rotate and tilt the map for the optimal view
- Compass-based auto-rotation of the map
- Movable map pins - drag and drop the pin exactly where you need it
- Search for locations by place name or enter coordinates directly
- Save any location you want - no fixed lists
- All features available in both portrait and landscape mode
- Does not require network connection for rise/set time, azimuths and sun/moon position

Advanced features:

- Automatic time zone detection for any location on earth
- Determines elevation above sea level
- View azimuth and altitude of sun/moon for any time of day/night
- Distance, bearing and elevation angle between any two points
- Import locations from KML files

Geek features:

- Find when the sun/moon will appear from behind a hill
- Compensation for atmospheric refraction
- Compensation for elevation above the horizon

Note:
- Maps and elevation-based calculations require a data connection to function
- Locations outside ±80° latitude (very far north and south) are unsupported
- Map auto-rotate requires a compatible device (with magnetometer and accelerometer)
- Requires that you have Google Play Services and Google Maps installed on your device. Most devices already have both installed. TPE will prompt you to install these if they are missing.

Please visit http://photoephemeris.com/support#android_support if you have any trouble installing Google Play Services.

TPE desktop version has been a favorite of photographers around the world for four years. Now you can carry it with you.

Recent changes:
- Fix for occasional crash affecting some users when setting elevation at horizon
- Bug fixes

This update requires Android 2.3.3 or higher.

User reviews of The Photographer's Ephemeris
Finally, the absolute Gold Standard sun and moon predictor for photographers is available for Android! As a landscape photographer and long-time TPE user, I can say it's been a long wait---but well worth it. All of the features from the desktop version seem to be present and fully functional. UI looks better than the iPhone version. THANK YOU Stephen Trainor! It's about time! ;) Droid X, stock GB 2.3.3

Great help This app really helps plan out your photography trips. I have used it numerous times to ensure not only the direction of moon and sunrise and set but also the times.

Great concept, execution needs work Needs ability to save pins, setting map defaults, and it really sucks when you are pinpointing a point in the map & the app decides to ping back to your current location. As is, it's semi functional, but really needs the kinks ironed out.

Auto-locate button not working The app is fine but the auto-locate (crosshair icon) is not working. Based on the description, it's supposed to go to the location detected by the device when tapped. Oddly enough, nothing is happening when I tap it.

Fantastic app for photographers. Does seem to have a bug at the moment, android 5 on Nexus 5, location/gps is turned off but the app is still using GPS and has used 40% of my battery today.
