If you are an astronomy buff, then you will love the SkyScout. A few years ago, the only way to identify the stars and the constellations is to use a very difficult to understand star chart. It was hard because most people just cannot decipher the chart. This turned off a lot of would be amateur astronomers. Well this is no longer the case. This is beause the SkyScout is a great device that easily identifies all planetary bodies in the hemisphere. It uses GPS technology to accurately pinpoint and identify each item in the sky. This is great for skywatching and it is also a great companion when one brings around a telescope. Astronomy just got easier and more fun with the SkyScout. It truly is.
