CelestronCelestron Skyscout telescope with GPS technology : Telescopes has announced that the demand for Celestron’s new SkyScout is nothing short of remarkable. The SkyScout is a hand held device that uses GPS technology to identify more than 6,000 stars, planets and sights in the night sky. According to Fortune Senior Editor Peter Lewis, “Celestron's SkyScout is the best thing to happen to backyard astronomers.” Telescopes Marketing Director Jon Thralow said, “It’s like the Tickle Me Elmo and PlayStation craze but this is for science geeks. The SkyScout is a $399,- item that has sold for more than double that on eBay.” The company will honor all orders without raising prices, but soon will not be able to guarantee delivery before Christmas.

“Every SkyScout we get into stock has been sold before we receive it,” Thralow noted. The SkyScout Personal Planetarium is both educational and entertaining. Simply point it at any bright star and it instantly identifies and tells about the object. It can even locate planets and stars during the day, but users will have little luck seeing them under these circumstances. A special feature of the SkyScout is “Tonight's Highlights,” which are automatically generated based on the time, date and location of the user.

Celestron Skyscout software - Night sky discovery
The software in the SkyScout determines the best and brightest objects that are above the horizon for that exact moment and location, making it an ideal tool for star parties and sky watchers alike. The “Constellation Lessons” feature is very popular, and the software is updatable to include new discoveries in the night sky.
