What is TPE?
  • TPE helps you plan outdoor photography shoots in natural light
  • It's a map-centric sun and moon calculator - see how the light will fall on the land, day or night, for any location on earth
  • Night mode - plan astro photography shoots (constellations, Milky Way, etc.)
  • Line-of-sight analysis - defines your shooting direction and shows the topography along your shooting direction
  • Visual search - tells you the exact dates and times when sun or moon will align with your subject
  • Maps - view different map types such as Apple or Google Maps
  • Time/direction of sun, moon, and galactic center rise/set
  • Moon phase and % illumination
  • Civil, nautical and astronomical twilight
  • Save all your favorite locations
  • Golden hour duration
  • Crescent moon visibility
  • Much more...
