Oh Boy, Sky Scout
I was reading Popular Science and came across a description of Celestron's SkyScout. Wow, what a gizmo! I searched the PopSci website, but couldn't find the reference. Here is the description:
The SkyScout is a revolutionary handheld device that uses advanced GPS
technology with point and click convenience to instantly identify thousands of stars, planets, constellations and more. Simply point the SkyScout at any star in the sky and click the "target" button. The SkyScout will instantly tell you what object you are looking at. To locate a star or planet, select the object's name from the menu and follow the directional arrows through the viewfinder. SkyScout tells you when you are on target. It's that easy!
