I have a nice telescope here at Headquarters, but unless I'm aiming it at a large object in the sky, like the moon, I'm really not good at finding anything. What I need is the cool new Celestron SkyScout.
This handheld personal planetarium allows me to instantly identify and/or locate over 6,000 celestial objects viewable to the naked eye with a simple push of the button. It also lets me listen to commentary on the object and it's history if I want. Even better, it has an innovative locate feature, so I can select an object I'm looking for, like a planet, and it will display illuminated arrows in the viewfinder to help me find it. This is the coolest thing for those interested in astronomy, students or for anyone who's just curious about the great galaxy beyond.
