Photoxor Toolkit - 3-dimensional ephemeris compass

Ephemeris 3D
Our Ephemeris calculations for twilight times, sun and moon positions are a long standing feature of Photoxor Toolkit. In addition to the 2-dimensional compass the upcoming release 20-06 allows for a 3-dimensional presentation of compass, earth, sun and moon.

How does it work?

An important note for users of older Android devices: The 3-dimensional presentation is supported from API 24 (Android 7.0, Nougat) only.

Ephemeris 2D

Open the Ephemeris screen. At  the bottom of the compass rose you'll find a new 2D / 3D switch. Click for 3D. The first time, the download of the 3D feature will be started. You might see a confirmation dialog to acknowledge the download. Once downloaded and installed, the 3-dimensional compass is ready to use!

Another note: Please make sure you have Internet access enabled for download, and consider download costs. The package is quite large.
