Why bother with all that telescope and reference book nonsense when a gadget like the Celestron SkyScout Personal Planetarium can do all the star spotting for you.
The SkyScout locates and identifies over 6,000 stars, planets, and constellations from its built-in database. It uses GPS to identify your chosen star or planet – point it in the sky, click the ‘target’ button and you’ll get all the information available. Or to locate a star or planet, select the object’s name from the menu and follow the directional arrows through the viewfinder. SkyScout will tell you when you are on target.
If you fancy yourself as the next Patrick Moore, you can pick one up for $347 (around £175).
