Content delivery is back online

Sunday 20 August 2017 - 6pm (CEST)
We had some problem with our content delivery server.
Products purchased have been off a few hours. We have proceeded with an emergency migration to a new server. They are available again.
Still missing: stories, faint stars server, observation conditions and deep sky images.
If you have just purchased options in the App, and not been able to download them, it's just a matter of time.
Your purchase is not forgotten and you will receive it soon.
Please, contact us at contact@star-map.fr and we'll assist you immediately.
We are very sorry for this delay. Than you very much for your patience !.
